Life Explorer Initiative
3D navigation and modeling tools for cellular biology
The LifeExplorer initiative aims at providing a multiscale modelisation of a complete bacteria. One software is currently available:
- The GraphiteLifeExplorer modeling tool to build 3D molecular assemblies of proteins and DNA from Protein Database (PDB) files. Atomic DNA can be modeled from scratch or reconstructed from simulation.
Future versions will bring:
- Links to biological components and process databases.
- Capabilities for modeling aminoacid linkers and nucleic acid single strands like RNA and ssDNA.
- 3D reconstruction tools from heterogeneous source (e.g. cryomicroscopic image).
GraphiteLifeExplorer (MacOS X, Linux, Windows)
A collection of training materials for GraphiteLifeExplorer is available here.
The LifeExplorer project is coordinated by the Fourmentin-Guilbert Scientific Foundation. GraphiteLifeExplorer is the result of a collaboration between the Fourmentin-Guilbert Scientific Foundation and INRIA (Samuel Hornus, Bruno Levy).
