Arthur Olson: Visualizing Molecular Recognition and Self-Assembly

Arthur Olson ( gives a very engaging demonstration of how molecular recognition and self-assembly can be explored using an innovative, hybrid user interface that combines 3D solid printing and his own augmented reality environment. He argues that a synthesis of both abstract & 3D visualization is needed to understand biological processes. He then presents impressive, cutting-edge methods for fast, integrated, and large-scale macromolecular visualization. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2011, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by NIH & EMBO.
