The LBT (Laboratoire de Biochimie Théorique, Paris, France) has developed original tools for visualization and analysis of protein structures, ported to advanced environments such as virtual reality headsets and display walls. This project aims to apply and improve the Unitymol approach to the study of membrane proteins and their assemblies. In particular, we plan to provide broader support for the variety of structural data available today, especially for cryo-EM datasets, and to partner with the company PaleBlue and Prof. Lutz Eichacker at the University of Stavanger, Norway, to apply additional components of innovative and immersive drug discovery tools to membrane proteins of interest.
