  • Instructions on how to download and install software on Quest 2

Data Sources/Format

The software allows you to generate peptide chains to study peptide bonds and structures. But, you cannot load in any data.


Single User

Allow you to edit and work in your workspace independently.

Minimum System Requirements (VR Mode)

OS: Windows 10 and MAC

GPU: GTX 1080 Ti

CPU: Intel i5-4590

  • Intermediate: Some coding or graphics experience | < 1 hour

  • Advanced: Both coding and graphics experience | < 30mins

  • Expert: A lot of experience with VR visualization | < 30mins

  • Takeaway:

  • The application encourages experiential learning about polypeptide properties and conformation through play

  • The intended users are tertiary level students studying protein structure but it is hoped that it will have wider appeal to a popular science audience.

  • Power: The engine's power- i.e. how much once can do with this

    • High- The software provides various features and is not laggy.

Usage: Evaluation of software's use for the following purposes

  • Display and Analysis of Structures

  • Viewing of Molecular Structure
