Getting poster data...
Derek P. Ng, Michael Corrin, Jodie Jenkinson, Graham Johnson (Biomedical Communications, Dept. Biology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences, University of California, San Francisco, USA )The amount and variety of biological data available to scientists from simulations, experiments, and data collection have exploded in recent years due to the technological advances in molecular biology and bioinformatics. In the case of proteins, the vast quantity and diversity of high-resolution structural and non-structural data have accumulated to the point where additional data visualization tools are required for meaningful data analysis. VizMol is a novel web-based interactive application that allows biomolecular scientists to make visual correlations between high-resolution protein structures and non-structural datasets. The ultimate aim of this tool is to allow the scientific user to gain insights that would be difficult, if not impossible, to attain from visualizing the individual datasets and structures alone.
