The knowledge of the structure of molecules is indispensable for the understanding of
many necessary concepts in the field quimico-biological sciences where the information contained
in the molecular structure is of special importance.
The molecular visualization using technical
of virtual reality, allows to include understand and to assimilate the structural characteristics
on which the function depends, of a dynamic and interactive form.
This way, the use of computacionales
molecular models, altogether with the appropriate techniques of visualization, the learning of concepts
constitutes very powerful tools of support to even teaching, that of another way, by its degree of
difficulty and abstraction is very difficult to assimilate.
¿What is 3D Molvis?
3D Molvis is a interface created in Qt for the program
of molecular visualization VMD. It facilitates the creation of sessions
of visualization with VMD by means of an interface destined only to provide
the appropriate controls for allow a easy and intuitive interaction of the
users. With this interface the user must be able to open a file in format
XML that contains two types of information:
- A list of widgets
- Code TCL of boot for VMD in charge to load molecules and to make adjustments preparatory in VMD
Widgets will be integrated in the interface in such a way that the interaction of the user will be
annotated to those elements of control, eliminating complexity in the VMD use.
¿What is the goal of 3D Molvis?
3D Molvis has as primary goal to promote the use of the
new technologies of virtual reality between the university professors to
facilitate the learning of the structural characteristics of the molecules
of indispensable study in the subjet that they distribute. The use of 3D
Molvis is specially appropriate for the cration of applications forteaching.
