Pre-release Preview


Aquaria is a system being developed to integrate protein 3D structures, sequences, and gene features.
This page gives access to a preview of the Aquaria 3D viewer only; the full system will have many other functionalities.

As shown in the video below, Aquaria uses the Molecular Control Toolkit to allow 3D navigation via the Kinect & Leap Motion.
You can access the toolkit source code, Javadoc, or, if you have a Kinect or Leap Motion, test the preview by clicking below. A help file for getting the application running is located here. For details, see Sabir et al., IEEE Digital Library (2013), published in the Proceedings of the 2013 IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization (BioVis) at Atlanta, GA, USA.

The Toolkit supports Leap Motion under Windows and MacOS (not Linux). Kinect runs only under Windows.
