Open Molecule Viewer
The progression of molecular visualization from 2D to 3D in the 90’s was revolutionary and expedited research, education, and outreach in a wide range of disciplines. Just like how virtual reality has recently revolutionized the gaming and entertainment industries, our question is: To what extent can it do the same for structural biology in the way people observe, explore, and interact with molecular data?
By providing direct workflows to create these experiences within seconds in Molecule Viewer, our BioNano Research group wants to find out.
Headset VR support (i.e. Oculus Rift, HTC Vive etc.) coming soon. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.

EMBO ICRP Conference
Oct 5th, 2016 University of Potsdam, Germany
Ernst Lab from University of Toronto presented the first virtual reality lecture in structure biology at the EMBO ICRP conference. The content of the talk was authored and conducted fully inside Molecule Viewer through a URL accessed in a web browser, and projected at the front of the room. At the same time, the audience went to the same URL on their smartphones browsers and followed along in virtual reality with their smartphones in Cardboard VR devices. Each participant was immersed in a molecular world of their own curated by the presenter, and consumed the content in their own perspectives.
