Join us for a one-hour webinar on Wednesday October 28 where we'll look at some of the advanced ways to use VMD for the visualization and analysis of biological systems. This online presentation will be hosted by Olivier Fisette, and Advanced Research Computing Analyst at the University of Saskatchewan.

VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) 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.

This webinar will look at some of the advanced features and functions of this visualization tool. After a short summary of VMD fundamentals, we learn to:

  • Navigate molecular trajectories (as opposed to single structures)
  • Produce basic movies using the “VMD Movie Maker” Control VMD from text scripts (basic programming)
  • Use scripts and external programs together to produce customised movies from molecular trajectories in an automated fashion


This is an online webinar. Connection instructions will be emailed to all registrants.
