Lectures on PACKing
cellPACK: A Virtual Mesoscope to Model and Visualize Structural Systems Biology
The cellPack framework contains software to model, analyze, visualize, database and collect feedback for iterative community improvement of mesoscale cellular volumes modeled with molecular detail.
"Project organizers plan to use the workshops as a springboard for determining how the 3D Virtual Cell could become part of the NSF's Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (S2I2) program, which focuses on the establishment of long-term hubs of excellence in software infrastructure and technologies that will serve a research community of substantial size and disciplinary breadth."
Modeling and Visualizing the Cellular Mesoscale
"Graham Johnson (grahamj.com) discusses challenges in visualizing 'mesoscale' data, i.e. the arrangement of macromolecules within cells - a scale where our knowledge is currently very sparse compared with larger and smaller scales. He presented the uPy and autoFill frameworks he co-developed that can automatically build models on this scale that are consistent with current knowledge, highly informative, and also aesthetically appealing. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2012, an international conference series on visualizing biological data (vizbi.org) funded by EMBO & NIH.
