Short summary
NMR relaxation rate constants are powerful probes of the functional dynamics of biological macromolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids. However, variations in choice of models used to analyze relaxation data obscure variations due to critical biological or chemical effects. Bootstrap aggregation, a recently developed statistical method, circumvents the model selection problem and enables more consistent and insightful interpretation of NMR relaxation data.
