Blender in Science: Disrupting COVID-19


Michelle Lehman writes:

This animation I created covers several of the key findings made by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Virtual Biotechnology Laboratory (NVBL) - a consortium of national laboratories dedicated to the research and understanding of COVID-19. Researchers provided scientifically accurate surface models and corresponding ribbon models for the relevant proteins and drugs that I was able to import into Blender and bring to life!

You can learn more about this research here.

Software used: Blender (cycles), After Effects and Premiere Pro.
