The 19th YSF and 44th FEBS conferences

I was at the 19th YSF and 44th FEBS conferences, in Krakow – Poland, during the last week (July 3rd to 11th) presenting my work about “Enhancing the catalytic power of Serine Hydroxymethyltransferase to produce commercially valuable compounds”. It was an excellent congress where I got some new ideas for the future. Thank you

Desenvolvimento de Software com Aplicação no Ensino Em Química e Biologia – VII Encontro da Divisão de Ensino e Divulgação da Química

Last Saturday (November 17th), I was presenting some of the software that we have developed at BioSIM research group to improve the way some chemical concepts are taught to our students.

VMD extensions, such as VMD Magazine, ToolBar, Protein Wars, and VMD Store were presented during the “VII Encontro da Divisão de Ensino e Divulgação da Química” conference. During the presentation, the software features were presented and were showed how these extensions can be used to engage young students to learn chemistry in a more pleasant and clear manner.

Moreover, the BioSIM Augmented Reality technology was presented for the first time, and it allows an easy and costless way to see molecules using augmented reality. See the video below:
