WestGrid webinar: Intermediate VMD topics - Trajectories, movies, scripting

Wed, Oct 28, 2020 @ 10:00am - 11:00am

Status: Completed

This webinar looks at some of the advanced ways to use VMD for the visualization and analysis of molecular systems.

In this one-hour webinar, we show some VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) features that go beyond the basics covered in our first VMD webinar. After a short summary of VMD fundamentals, we learn to:

  • Navigate molecular trajectories (as opposed to single structures)
  • Produce basic movies using the “VMD Movie Maker”
  • Control VMD from text scripts (basic programming)
  • Use scripts and external programs together to produce customised movies from molecular trajectories in an automated fashion

(Image used for this event is a screenshot of VMD 1.8.5.)
