from the 2013 AMI Conference

Enjoying Salt Lake City, Utah for the 2013 AMI Conference.  We’re only 2 days in so far, but I’ve already learned a lot and met a lot of people.  Yesterday, my coworker Alex and I attended workshops for the epmv (embedded python molecular viewer) and auto pack plug-ins.  Graham Johnson was leading the workshops and we learned a lot about the capability of pdb files, and how to work with selections, we explored a lot of the hierarchy within the way molecules are expressed coming through that program and how to manipulate those settings, how to work with repeating biological units in molecules, and it was really my first foray into using auto-pack at all.  I kind of liked my polio virus molecule render.

And then today we heard a variety of speakers, starting with a talk on innovation by Dr. Roberta Ness, new manners of data visualization, and the future of web animation and even a talk on good healthy working posture and habits.

I am on the verge of falling asleep here, otherwise I’d say a little more about it all.  These medical illustrators seem to get up early though, so I’ll have to try and say some more about it all later.
