Molecular Animation

I decided to start learning molecular animation.  A couple of months ago, I had watched this video:

and made this video of photosystem II on my MacBook Air from 2011:

I tried following the video tutorial on my Windows machine and found that I was not able to make the movie since it did not have Quicktime.  I Googled around and found this tip to use eMovie from the Weizmann Institute.  I installed the Python script into my Pymol folder and started up the software and it seemed to work.  It seems useful, but complex.  I am going to slowly learn it, but I need to focus on the structural biology of kinases for my talk on 3/23-3/24 so I am not sure I will waste time learning eMovie now.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
