The larger and more complex networks are, the more difficult their visualization on the screen becomes. Conventional computer programs quickly reach their limits. This challenge was addressed by network scientist Jörg Menche and his research group at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. They developed a VR platform for exploring huge amounts of data and their complex interplay in a uniquely intuitive fashion.
In this article you will discover the work of a team in CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences to visualize complex protein interactions thanks to virtual reality. The 3D representation and the natural interactions with data allow researchers to better understand the network.
