We present an approach to represent DNA nanostructures in varying forms of semantic abstraction, describe ways to smoothly transition between them, and thus create a continuous multiscale visualization and interaction space for applications in DNA nanotechnology. [...] Key Method We also add scale-adaptive interactions that facilitate the intuitive modification of complex structures at multiple scales. We demonstrate the applicability of our approach on an experimental use case. Moreover, feedback from our…Expand
DimSUM: Dimension and Scale Unifying Map for Visual Abstraction of DNA Origami Structures
TLDR
A novel visualization concept for DNA origami structures that integrates a multitude of representations into a Dimension and Scale Unifying Map (DimSUM), which provides means to analyze, smoothly transition between, and interact with many visual representations of the DNA Origami structures in an effective way that was not possible before.

Interactive Exploded Views for Molecular Structures
TLDR
This paper discusses four key parameters of an exploded view: explosion distance, direction, order, and the selection of explosion components and proposes two strategies, namely the structure-derived exploded view and the interactive free-form exploded view, for computing these four parameters systematically.
