Welcome to ePMV
The open-source uPy plugin, embedded Python Molecular Viewer (ePMV) runs molecular-modeling software directly in several professional 3D animation applications (hosts). Uniting host and scientific software in a single interface allows users from varied backgrounds to assemble professional quality visuals and to perform computational experiments with relative ease. The combination provides:
• High quality rendering with shadows, camera effects, global illumination, ambient occlusion, etc.By enabling easy exchange of algorithms, ePMV can facilitate interdisciplinary research, smooth communication between broadly diverse specialties and provide a common platform to frame and visualize the increasingly detailed intersection(s) of cellular and molecular biology.
ePMV is free and the ePMV plugin currently supports:
• Cinema4D r12, r13, r14™
• Blender 2.49, 2.58, 2.60, 2.6.2, 2.6.8aWith the help of developers like you, this list can easily extend to include Houdini, Lightwave, SoftImage, Modo, and many others...
Please acknowledge the use of the ePMV software that results in any published work, including scientific papers, textbooks, covers, animations, slides, etc. with this citation.

Ludovic Autin Named Finalist in Science Art Competition
The image, “Synaptic Vesicle,” by Ludovic Autin, senior research associate in the Olson lab, is one of nine finalists from six countries in the 2014 JALA & JBS Art of Science Contest, sponsored by the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening to highlight the role visualization plays in the analysis and presentation of scientific work. Autin’s image is a molecular model of three synaptic vesicles, based on the work of Takamori et al. The individual 3-D protein models were generated using the embedded Python Molecular Viewer (ePMV) Autin developed in the Olson lab and packed to create the mesoscale model using autoPACK/cellPACK software developed with TSRI alumnus Graham Johnson. Adam Gardner, Olson lab assistant, helped provide the final ...
