zSpace, Inc. Showcases 3D Platform for Biotechnology and Molecular Modeling at ACS

Demonstration of PyMOL and Avogadro Software at zSpace Booth #1731

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2013) - zSpace, Inc., a technology provider that is transforming the future of human-computer interaction, will demonstrate its flagship product, zSpace, with the popular molecular visualization software programs PyMOL and Avogadro at the 246th ACS Meeting and Exposition taking place September 8-12, 2013 in Indianapolis, IN. The integration of PyMOL with zSpace, an immersive 3D platform that offers users a highly realistic and interactive experience, was developed in collaboration with the University of Southern California Dornsife College of Letters and Sciences.

PyMOL and Avogadro are world-renowned applications used for the presentation, visualization and modification of biological molecules. Avogadro is an advanced cross-platform molecule editor and visualizer designed for use in computational chemistry, molecular modeling, bioinformatics, materials science and related areas. PyMOL is a widely used program for the scientific analysis, graphical and educational presentation of molecular structures. In labs around the globe, PyMOL is used on a daily basis for visualizing structure, measuring structural features such as distances and angles and for identifying binding interfaces, secondary structure elements and protein-DNA readout modes.

By combining zSpace's virtual holographic platform with PyMOL and Avogadro, scientists and researchers gain a realistic environment for visualizing and modifying biological molecules.

"Demonstrating these modeling tools on the zSpace platform at ACS will allow scientists to experience firsthand the benefits of a fully immersive and interactive solution -- right from their desktops," said Paul Beroza, Ph.D., Founder, QuantiSci Consulting and zSpace consultant. "By leveraging zSpace in their workflows, PyMOL and Avogadro users can significantly increase their research productivity to enable scientific discovery."

The ACS National Meeting & Exposition feature over 7,000 presentations on new discoveries in science. Topics include food and nutrition, medicine, health, energy, the environment and other fields where chemistry plays a central role. The meeting's theme, "Chemistry in Motion," showcases transportation technologies, including biofuels and alternative energy, lightweight materials and new ways of reducing the effects of friction, which impacts fuel economy.

zSpace will demonstrate its interactive 3D platform in booth #1731.
