Upload your file. Otherwise you will see example data.

Currently HaDeX is limited to `cluster` files from DynamX 3.0 and 2.0

Accepted file extensions: .csv, .xsl, .xslx.

Supplied file should containt at least two repetitions of the measurement fot the uncertainty to be calculated.

If supplied file contains modificated peptides, maximal exchange control cannot be applied.

This function plots the change in the uncertainty of deuteration levels as a function of incubation time. The uncertainty is averaged over all peptides available at a given time point in a selected state. This chart has a double function: firstly, it allows checking if the measurement uncertainty is decreasing over time (which is the expected behaviour) and the second one helps to plan the appropriate incubation length for the tested protein (whether we obtain the desired data reliability values).


This table was adapted from the HDX Data Summary (Masson, G.R., Burke, J.E., Ahn, N.G., Anand, G.S., Borchers, C., Brier, S., Bou-Assaf, G.M., Engen, J.R., Englander, S.W., Faber, J., et al. (2019).
