Paper of the Month

DIVE: A data instensive visualization engine.
Paper of the Month
Bromley, D., Rysavy, S.J., Su, R., Toofanny, R.D., Schmidlin, T., Daggett V.
Bioinformatics 30:593, 2014

Modern scientific investigation is generating increasingly larger data sets, yet analyzing these data with current tools is challenging. DIVE is a software framework intended to facilitate big data analysis and reduce the time to scientific insight. Here we present features of the framework and demonstrate DIVE’s application to the Dynameomics project, looking specifically at two proteins. More...

Goals: Realistic simulation of protein dynamics, unfolding/folding, and conformational transitions linked to disease.
