Update to the “PyMol models and Figures” page!

Did a large update to the “PyMol models and figures” today. I added a lot of different styled figures from my PhD thesis.

My very first PyMol figures

Back in 2007 when I was writing my bachelor thesis in macromolecular crystallography I made my very first PyMol rendering. It was off a crystal structure I had solved during my project of elongation factor 2 from yeast. I knew that EF2 contained six domains, so I wanted to visualize the domains boundaries for the readers of the thesis (all two of them). To do this I decided to use PyMol and this was the result: Continue reading My very first PyMol figures

A different kind of molecular visualization

My girlfriend drew the below figure in pen by hand, to be used as a cover for a scientific assignment. We then scanned the drawing to as high resolution as our crappy desktop scanner/printer would allow and I processed the drawing using the free raster graphics editor GIMP.

How to wrap textures around crystal structures – the lazy way

Here I will give a very rough guide on how to wrap, or rather overlay, an image onto the surface of a molecule using PhotoShop CS5 and PyMol. You should end with something like this:

Flags
