An exercise to improve 3d modeling skills, following a tutorial created by Eric Keller on Molecular Movies.  Here we can see a mouse embryo developing in one of the many uteri found in an adult female mouse. Autodesk Maya software was used.

‘Flu Neuraminidase Tetramer Simulation

Neuraminidase is an important virulence factor in flu infections. The protein cleaves glycosidic linkages of neuraminic acids, thus allowing the maturing viral particles from its host cell. Certain drugs are able to inhibit this enzyme, limiting the replication of the virus. Here is a simulation of the neuraminidase tetramer with[…]
