Hamish Todd, University Of Edinburgh, Andrew Goryachev, Taku Komura
2020
We have created a computer program for performing this task in virtual reality, which allows structural biologists to build models using their hands.  ...  Some portion of time spent creating these models must be spent manually modifying the model in order to make it line up with the data; this is difficult and time consuming, in part because the data is  ...  They are also, from the point of view of computer graphics, an unusual sort of shape.  ...
