Nice video that i have found on a friends web site (

"The video was created by me (Michael Wesch), working alone from my house in St. George, Kansas. I used CamStudio for the screen captures and Sony Vegas for the panning/cropping/zooming animations. Someday I might make a video tutorial for those who are interested."

bezier curve for protein ruban

Thats dones! I am quite happy to finally get a nice protein worm representation directly in blender. But there is still the coloring method problem...I have to associate vertex with material according physical property...And try to display arrow and helix for secondary structure type...
(thanks to the blender tutorial here : and the API help)

Can a Biologist Fix a Radio?

This is not news, and I am not the first to post this, but as much it is diffuse the better it is!
here it is the : Can a Biologist Fix a Radio? (PDF - 469 KB), by Yuri Lazebnik. It’s all about how experimental biologists would try to find out how a radio works. The article suggests that an engineering-like approach would lead to a deeper understanding of how cells work (last time i have saw it reasonable deviation, also on Freelancing Science and God Plays Dice).

blender protein ribbon

I continue to play around python and blender API. Thats not easy, but copy/past technics gives some result...Thus, i currently explore the curve system. Each point have the coordinate of an atom, and define a nurb curve. Thats not realistic, I had to improve it to use bezier curve (BezTriple class).

The result (simple, not sophiticated as it is just modeling test, and I have no idea of what color is good or not...dyschromatopsy!):
