Title

Development of Informal Learning Channels for Visualization of Cellular and Molecular Images

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

Visualization of molecular and cellular images is of great importance in demonstrating and understanding molecule and cell structures. Thanks to the advance in science, engineering and technology, many techniques have been developed to visualize and simulate molecular graphics in great details. These techniques play an important role in the study of molecules and cells in many fields; however, they have not been widely distributed to and comprehended by the general public. This project aims at developing educational materials as forms of informal learning channels to promote awareness of science at the interface of computing and biology. This will support public understanding of molecular structures and their properties. With the use of advanced technology, molecular visualization is not limited to 2D depiction, but can be created in 3D, and even simulated in motion. This kind of visual representation will generate interest in discovering the complexity of the natural world, starting from one of the smallest units of matter - molecules. It will also be beneficial to the understanding of bacteria, viruses and diseases, especially when we are living in the COVID-19 pandemic.
