Explore the unseen world. Autodesk Research Molecule Viewer is a web-based 3D tool optimized for viewing, exploring, and sharing of large-scale protein datasets from the RCSB Protein Data Bank directly in the web browser.
3D visualization of large and multi-scale biological data, from macro-molecular structures to whole organisms, is integral to building models for biomedical research. Existing standards for desktop, plug-in, and web-based applications for 3D visualization can easily push beyond the limits of advanced processing and rendering.
The Autodesk Research Molecule Viewer and its web-based 3D visualization platform is built to leverage cloud capabilities to overcome limitations of scalability, capability, accessibility, collaboration, and communication for 3D biological datasets.
This 3.6-Angstrom cryoEM structure of human adenovirus type 5 (PDB ID 3IYN) is made up of 6 million atoms shown in the web browser on Autodesk Molecule Viewer.
Layered on an extensible web-based visualization framework optimized for large 3D models and data, the Molecule Viewer streams in and visualizes translated data from the RCSB Protein Data Bank directly in the browser.
Beyond the Molecule Viewer application, this effort will serve as a stepping stone to launch investigations extending this 3D visualization framework to other large-scale scientific 3D data, making exploration and design of large 3D data scalable, accessible, and shareable.
