Description

This webinar looks at some of the advanced ways to use Visual Molecular Dynamics (VMD) for the visualization and analysis of biological systems. 

VMD is designed for modeling, visualization, and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. VMD provides a wide variety of methods for rendering and coloring a molecule: simple points and lines, CPK spheres and cylinders, licorice bonds, backbone tubes and ribbons, cartoon drawings, and others. For more information, visit the VMD homepage.
