Bio Visualization with Blender and MembraneEditor - An Introduction

The workshop will be virtually held via Zoom, September 10th, 2020, 13:00 - 15:00 UTC (15:00 - 17:00 CEST, 2 - 4 pm UK), as satellite event of the GMDS conference.

Conferences like VizBi or BioVis show that biomedical visualization is crucial in many fields. In this mini workshop we will introduce methods using different software packages to visualize molecular data without the need of complex background knowledge. This mini workshop will come with a brief introduction talk to the field of bio visualization, an overview of the relevant software packages and resources, as well as life demos of how to use these software packages. Topics will be covered from creating membranes and building vesicles with the MembraneEditor, over design of biology-related 3D models with Blender. We will also give a short outlook regarding molecular simulations based on the models created.

The workshop will take place via Zoom. Follow-up workshops are planned with hands-on sessions for the different tools - interested participants can register for this purpose afterwards.

Attendance is free - please register here and you will get the link to join the Zoom Webinar:
