Modeling Software for WOC Cycle Operation

Operation of the water-oxidizing complex (WOC) of photosystem II (PSII) follows a period-four cycle with standard inefficiencies. Using a chaining Markov model, we have produced the most accurate method for determining these inefficiencies, the VZAD model. This model can be used to fit experimental data from flash oxygen measurements of any PSII-containing sample. The current Version 1.1 (November 2017) is available below.

Potentiostat Cyclic Voltammetry Data Extraction Scripts

We have developed a Python script to analyze cyclic voltammograms (CV), correct the potentials, extract Tafel slopes, and make CV and Tafel plots. The scripts have been customized for all potentiostats available in our laboratory. These scripts can be easily adapted to other potentiostats and represent a useful tool for those who need to treat electrochemical data on a regular basis. All variants are made publicly available on our GitHub page:
