CellVIEW is the fruit of a collaboration with Mathieu Le Muzic and Ivan Viola from the Vienna University of Technology. The software is free for download at http://www.autopack.org/home/cellview
CellVIEW is a new tool that provides fast rendering of very large biological macromolecular scenes and is inspired by state-of-the-art computer graphics techniques. CellVIEW is implemented in a free-to-use game engine, unity3D. CellVIEW provides fast rendering by introducing new means to efficiently reduce the amount of processed geometries. CellVIEW is unique and has been specifically designed to match the ambitions of structural biologist to model and interactively visualize structures comprised of several billions atoms, such as this model of an entire HIV virion in blood plasma.
