Hundreds of Brownies become budding physicists at University of Warwick

Staff and research students from the University of Warwick’s physics department welcomed hundreds of Brownies to campus at the weekend (13 and 14 October).

The seven to ten-year-olds, from across Coventry, Warwickshire, and Solihull, spent the weekend learning all about physical sciences. The girls also received a special badge designed by nine-year-old Coventry Brownie, Gracie-May Kelly.

image Touching proteins with virtual bare hands: how to visualize protein-drug complexes and their dynamics in virtual reality

The ability to precisely visualize the atomic geometry of the interactions between a drug and its protein target in structural models is critical in predicting the correct modifications in previously identified inhibitors to create more effective next generation drugs. Here we present a freely available software pipeline for visualising protein structures through virtual reality (VR) on regular customer hardware, such as the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.
