SUMMARY ViewDock TDW is a modification of the pre-existing ViewDock Chimera extension ( used to visualize results of virtual screening experiments. By combing TDW hardware and an enhanced ViewDock interface, dozens of ligand-protein complexes are rendered simultaneously to parallelize the analysis of candidate ligands. The ViewDock TDW GUI allows the user to easily and interactively manipulate the molecules on the TDW as an entire set, a selected subset or a…

Hydra: An HTML5-Based Application for High- Throughput Visualization of Ligand Docking

Hydra is an HTML5-based application for highthroughput visualization of molecular docking simulations that is platform agnostic, and therefore can be deployed quickly and cheaply across various hardware configurations.

Conceptual framework and methodology for analysing previous molecular docking results

A conceptual framework tailored to enable biomedical scientists to reuse molecular docking results, and a methodology which uses regular input from scientists, has been proposed, which enable more user-friendly implementations, and less error-prone use of computational methods in drug discovery.

Large-scale comparative visualisation of sets of multidimensional data

Encube is presented, a qualitative, quantitative and comparative visualisation and analysis system, with application to high-resolution, immersive three-dimensional environments and desktop displays, and an approach that enables scientists to continue the research process once back at their desktop.

Dynamic features of apo and bound HIV-Nef protein reveal the anti-HIV dimerization inhibition mechanism

Comparative long-range all-atom molecular dynamics simulations were employed for apo and bound protein to unveil molecular mechanism of HIV-Nef dimerization and inhibition and clearly revealed that B9, a newly discovered Nef inhibitor, binds at the dimeric interface of Nef protein.

High-Resolution Streaming Functionality in SAGE2 Screen Sharing

This paper incorporates a frame-streaming method designed into Screen Sharing to realize the functionality of high-resolution streaming, and demonstrates that the method enables Screen sharing to display the application window at an arbitrary resolution on a TDW.

Identification of novel GSK1070916 analogs as potential aurora B inhibitors: insights from molecular dynamics and MM/GBSA based rescoring

Molecular dynamics simulations proved that the identified hits are rather stable in the enzyme active site pocket, which further confirms the potential of the designed ligands as a specific target for aurora B.

A Multi-Application Controller for SAGE-enabled Tiled Display Wall in Wide-area Distributed Computing Environments

A multi-application controller for SAGE (Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment), which is developed, in the hope that it will help scientists efficiently perform scientific research requiring high-performance computing and visualization.

Analyzing Google Earth application in a heterogeneous commodity cluster display wall

A new metric, named Visualization Rate (VR), is defined, which enables a relationship to be established between the user experience and the platform performance, and the VR trend when the Liquid Galaxy is scaled from 3 up to 8 nodes in both the homogeneous and heterogeneous architectures to study the scalability of the system.

Characterization of Plasmodium Atg3-Atg8 Interaction Inhibitors Identifies Novel Alternative Mechanisms of Action in Toxoplasma gondii

It is reported that one of the PfAtg3-Atg8 interaction inhibitors induces Toxoplasma egress and provide evidence that this is mediated by an increase in intracellular calcium in response to drug treatment, suggesting the viability of this pathway as a drug target.



UCSF Chimera—A visualization system for exploratory research and analysis

Two unusual extensions are presented: Multiscale, which adds the ability to visualize large‐scale molecular assemblies such as viral coats, and Collaboratory, which allows researchers to share a Chimera session interactively despite being at separate locales.

The Protein Data Bank

The goals of the PDB are described, the systems in place for data deposition and access, how to obtain further information and plans for the future development of the resource are described.

Docking and scoring in virtual screening for drug discovery: methods and applications

Key concepts and specific features of small-molecule–protein docking methods are reviewed, selected applications are highlighted and recent advances that aim to address the acknowledged limitations of established approaches are discussed.
