Protein Visualization in Wolfram Language

Estimated Time: 35 min

Course Level: Beginner


The Wolfram Language ProteinVisualization paclet is for researchers, educators and anyone else interested in structural biology. Learn the basics of these functions and how to visualize biomolecules. In this video, you will explore examples of 2D and 3D visualizations in chemistry and biology, as well as use computation to understand the structural and functional biology of biomolecules.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language (available in Mathematica and Wolfram|One)

You'll Learn To

  • Use the ProteinVisualization paclet
  • Use the ProteinBackboneAtomPlot, AmidePlanePlot and DihedralAnglePlot functions for education
  • Use the ProteinContactMap, ResidueDistanceMatrix and ProteinContactGraphPlot functions for research
  • Generate 2D and 3D structures of amino acids, peptides, amide planes and dihedral angles
  • Calculate and plot dihedral angle distributions and the pairwise distance between residues
  • Visualize residue-residue interactions in proteins
