Molecular visualization is a quintessential example of the central challenge of medical illustration – how can we show what can’t be seen? Scientists and artists have developed diverse solutions to this challenge, and there are molecular representation styles ranging from line drawings to volumetric data renderings. But which is best to use and why? This talk will review the nature of protein structural data, standard molecular representations, and the function of each representation type. Learn how to portray a molecule based on the purpose of the visualization, and tell your molecular stories more effectively.
