Inside protein structures: teaching in three dimensions

Berry, Colin ORCID: and Baker, Matthew Douglas 2010. Inside protein structures: teaching in three dimensions. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education 38 (6) , pp. 425-429. 10.1002/bmb.20434

Teaching students about the structure and function of proteins is central to Biochemistry, but it is often extremely difficult to impart an understanding of complex three-dimensional relationships when using two-dimensional projection screens. The ready availability of both high-quality molecular visualization software and programs capable of generating anaglyph images makes it possible to bring spatial relationships to life with three-dimensional images using standard projection facilities and inexpensive red/cyan glasses; 3D graphical representations make a simple, economical, and effective addition to the graphical tools used in teaching Biochemistry.
