Scientist in the Spotlight: Molecular Animation

Scientist in the Spotlight: Molecular Animation

Presented by Natural History Museum of Utah at Natural History Museum of Utah

Did you know that scientists can use animation software to help better understand complicated problems in molecular biology? Animators are able to make movies of things that are otherwise too small to see, which is sometimes the only way we can visualize what we think might be happening inside a cell. For scientists, animations are great thinking tools.

Join Molecular Animator, Janet Iwasa, as she demonstrates how she uses animation software from Hollywood to create movies about how molecules work. See her process from storyboard to finished product, and discover how a simple animation can unlock our understanding of molecular biology.
