S3I. Spider Silk Standardization Inititative



The Excel File “Alpha MA silk calculator” allows calculating the value of the αT* parameter for major ampullate (MA) gland silk fibers. The αT* parameter classifies any MA fiber by comparing it with a reference curve of supercontracted Argiope aurantia MA fibers. The details of the calculation can be found in R. Madurga et al.,

Material properties of evolutionary diverse spider silks described by variation in a single structural parameter”, Scientific Reports 6:18991
