The folding dynamics of proteins at the single-molecule level has been studied with single-molecule force spectroscopy experiments for 20 years, but a common standardized method for the analysis of the collected data and for sharing among the scientific community members is still not available. We have developed a new open-source tool—Fodis—for the analysis of the force-distance curves obtained in single-molecule force spectroscopy experiments, providing almost automatic processing, analysis, and classification of the obtained data. Our method provides also a classification of the possible unfolding pathways and the structural heterogeneity present during the unfolding of proteins.

Abstract

The folding dynamics of proteins at the single-molecule level has been studied with single-molecule force spectroscopy experiments for 20 years, but a common standardized method for the analysis of the collected data and for sharing among the scientific community members is still not available. We have developed a new open-source tool—Fodis—for the analysis of the force-distance curves obtained in single-molecule force spectroscopy experiments, providing almost automatic processing, analysis, and classification of the obtained data. Our method provides also a classification of the possible unfolding pathways and the structural heterogeneity present during the unfolding of proteins.
