Sharlene Denos will present the molecular visualization tool VMD, created by the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group of Klaus Schulten in the Physics Department and Beckman Institute. This software was developed for biophysicists who want to model and analyze complex systems of biological molecules. Sharlene will explain how she has also used it to teach basic biochemistry and genetics concepts to high school students.

Join us for pizza and Math, Science, and Technology Education discussion each Friday! Many weeks have a scheduled speaker/activity, and the remaining weeks are dedicated to discussion of math/science/education topics brought by participants. Feel free to join us if you are in the Champaign-Urbana area; we just request that you RSVP so that we have enough pizza!
