Transcript

  • 1. http://tidalblog.blogspot.com/
    http://bit.ly/listfaq
    Graham Mills
    TBinSL:Thinking Big about the Very Small
  • 2. Visualization: molecules, gene data, cells...
    Max Chatnoir demonstrates her giant cellon Elucian Isles
  • 3. Context: TB (tuberculosis)
     Downsides
    Bacterial infection
    Kills 4500 people daily
    Antibiotic-resistant strains
    Vaccines of limited use
    Rapidly lethal in HIV/AIDS
    Hard to do labwork
    Upsides
    • Major research initiatives aimed at developing new drugs and vaccines and eliminating TB by 2020
  • Molecules
    Small molecules (metabolites, drugs)
    • Hiro Sheridan: molecule rezzer (ACS), Orac [1]
    • 4. Incorporated into metabolic browser
     
    Large molecules: proteins, etc
    • Prim-intensive: Troy McLuhan [2]
    • 5. Added interactivity
    • 6. Sculpted: HiroSheridan [3]
    • 7. Added interactivity
    • 8. Also: animated [4] and static textures [5], particles
    • 9. SL Molecular Structures Group (AsorelTodriya)
    • 10. Lang & Bradley (2009)http://journal.chemistrycentral.com/content/3/1/14
     
  • 11. Molecules in Second Life

  • 12. Metabolic browser
    Molecules by Hiro Sheridan’s Oracand stored inTroy McLuhan’s holoemitter
  • 13. Prim-intensive protein models (backbone only)
    M. tuberculosis
    cellulase
  • 14. Student work on A2M in the E. coli cell wall (2008)
    A2M
  • 15. Sculpted protein (+ particle)
  • 16. Student group work (2009)
    Students work on different genes
    Groups work on different species
    Link by teleport to giant TB genome
  • 17. Datascape: Giant TB genome
    Genes encode proteins
    >4000 TB genes, alltouch-sensitive
  • 18. Individual genes and their products
    Associations withother proteins (STRING)
    Contextual sub-map
    SLV 2.0 texture on marker
  • 19. Take your analytical tools with you: shared media dashboard
    Follower is a mashup of
    Puppeteer and Scratch4SL
  • 20. Cellscape: porins, alveolus, macrophage
  • 21. Cityscape: The Cure
  • 22. Robert Koch’s lab
  • 23. TB timeline maze (under construction)
    TB started here
    And is a major problem here
  • 24. Conclusions
    Progress has been made so let’s share it!
    It’s not content, it’s collaboration
    Reasons to be cheerful
    Some students (not all) like this!!
    Groupwork works
    Shared media (meshes next?)
