Research and Publications

 

Our Research covers a broad spectrum of visual computing related to modeling, construction, representation, visualization and interaction techniques for multiscale dynamic molecular models of biological organisms and biotechnological structures.

Our Technology will ultimately enable visual exploration and communication of virtual 3D representations of life forms integrating the most up-to-date knowledge from biological research.
