Art & Science award at ECCB/ISMB 2011

Art & Science award for the BALL project

At the joint meeting of  the 19th Annual International Conference onf Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) and the 10th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), our contribution "Reflections on Protein Structures" received the Art and Science Award. 

Reflections on Protein Structure


Our contribution was created with our real time raytracing enabled BALLView. The image shows a human A2A adenosine receptor - a member of the famous class of G-protein coupled receptors. 

It was created using BALLView integrated with the real time ray tracing library RTfact. If you look closely, you can see the reflections inside the reflections inside the reflections... 

Thus Ray tracing techniques allow unique insight into molecular structures - but they also allow to combine science and art.
