The big picture - 3D structure from molecules to cells


Recently, a paper describing PDBe’s new volume slicer was published in the Journal of Structural Biology. This volume slicer is a web-based tool that allows scientists to look in detail at all 3D bioimaging datasets in EMDB, the Electron Microscopy Data Bank, without the need to install any software. It is the first step in the development of an integrated browser that will allow visualisation, integration and analysis of 3D structural data on scales from molecules to cells. The development of this integrated browser is part of PDBe’s MOL2CELL project. PDBe's Gerard Kleywegt tells you more in this blog:
