Staff and research students from the University of Warwick’s physics department welcomed hundreds of Brownies to campus at the weekend (13 and 14 October).
The seven to ten-year-olds, from across Coventry, Warwickshire, and Solihull, spent the weekend learning all about physical sciences. The girls also received a special badge designed by nine-year-old Coventry Brownie, Gracie-May Kelly.
The ability to precisely visualize the atomic geometry of the interactions between a drug and its protein target in structural models is critical in predicting the correct modifications in previously identified inhibitors to create more effective next generation drugs. Here we present a freely available software pipeline for visualising protein structures through virtual reality (VR) on regular customer hardware, such as the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.
