Bio Visualization with Blender and MembraneEditor

Bjorn Sommer, Royal College of Art - London/CELLmicrocosmos project

Length of Tutorial:

full day

Technical level:

low

Conferences like VizBi or BioVis show that biomedical visualization is crucial in many fields. More particular, 3D visualization provides many opportunities since the web browser 3D support was improved and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies are becoming ubiquitous. Here, we will introduce methods using different software packages to realize 3D models of biological data, e.g. molecular or bird tracking data. This workshop will come with a number of short introduction talks discussing different related topics, as well as hands-on sessions during which participants can learn how to use the different software packages. Topics will be covered from creating membranes and building vesicles with the MembraneEditor, over design of biology-related 3D models with Blender, and finally visualizing them in the browser. Moreover, we will also touch on opportunities provided by VR.
