3D visualization of large and multi-scale biological data, from macro-molecular structures to whole organisms, is integral to building predictive models for biomedical research; however, existing industry standard desktop, plug-in, and web-based applications can easily push beyond the limits of advanced processing and rendering.
The Autodesk Research Molecule Viewer and its visualization platform are designed to leverage cloud capabilities to overcome limitations of scalability, capability, accessibility, collaboration, and outreach for biological datasets. Layered on an extensible web-based visualization framework optimized for large 3D models and data, the Molecule Viewer streams in and visualizes translated data from the RCSB Protein Data Bank directly in the browser.
Autodesk Senior Research Scientist, Merry Wang just used the Molecule Viewer to visualize the Zika virus.
To learn more about the technology used to view the virus:
We are eager to hear from scientists regarding what our technology brings to the table. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the forum dedicated to this technology preview on the Autodesk Labs site. What other viruses would you like to see?
Virus visualization is alive in the lab.
