Map of U.S.A. with Collaboratory sites


The Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics, a NCRR Resource Center, has created a software system to support collaborative studies of molecular structure among scientists at multiple remote locations. This "collaboratory" allows scientists to share and interactively manipulate complex three-dimensional molecular models for applications such as drug design and protein engineering. An early prototype collaboratory with limited functionality was constructed based on the MidasPlus molecular modeling system and was demonstrated at NETAMORPHOSIS in Washington, D.C. on March 11-13, 1998, sponsored by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Economic Council. (See this UCSF Daybreak news article for details.) However, our current work is based on Chimera, and it is this version of the software which we are now distributing.
