PMG in science

NETWATCH: Molecular Home Movies

Press article in science magazine about PMG :

"The new Protein Movie Generator (PMG) provides an online studio for budding scientific Walt Disneys. Produced by two researchers at the University of Paris, the site makes it easy to create animations that put molecules in motion.

PMG starts with files from the Protein Data Bank or trajectories from molecular simulations. Users can then script simple scenarios, such as an enzyme pirouetting to display its active site, or more complex maneuvers, such as a ligand gliding in to dock with its receptor. If you prefer stills, you can use PMG to craft molecular graphics. This illustration, for instance, bares some of the internal structure of triosephosphate isomerase, one of the sugar-slicing enzymes of glycolysis."
