Abstract

Analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) remains a highly versatile and widely applicable tool for the analysis of macromolecules and their interactions. The current state-of-the-art was demonstrated at a recent international meeting held in Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2017, the 23rd International Analytical Ultracentrifugation Workshop and Symposium. This special issue showcases the reports made at the meeting, which concerned the application of AUC to a wide range of topics in biochemical and polymer science including antibody and membrane protein characterisation, and protein-carbohydrate interactions. Presentations on development and testing of new instrumentation and methods of analysis were a particular feature of the meeting, including the optimisation of experimental protocols, and the latest optimised computational approaches to experimental simulation and the modelling of macromolecular structures.
