VR for PyMOL

VIRTALIS has added both screen-based Virtual Reality (“VR”) tracking and the ability to interact with chemical structures via a tracked hand held device to PyMOL. Scientists and students alike know that the visualisation of protein interactions in two dimensions ranges from tedious to virtually impossible owing to the proteins' sheer size and complexity.

This problem has now been solved by Virtalis, a leading force in advanced visualisation. Our cost effective range of commercially available immersive, 3D Virtual Reality (VR) solutions enables visualisation to take on a new dimension.

Through work conducted for Dr. James F. Hinton, University Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at University of Arkansas, which hosts the US Centre for Protein Function and Structure, Virtalis developed a VR software plug-in for PyMOL - this is the most widely used 3D molecular visualisation application.

"I knew what I wanted and I knew want I needed. I tried hard to find the solution and the VR enabling of PyMOL by Virtalis makes interacting with protein structures in the ActiveMove very easy. People are rather blasé when I introduce the system, but I wait for the inevitable gasps that follow as they see its power."
