Models on the cover

In 2009, an israeli model (Bar Refaeli) had gotten the cover of the sports illustrated special swimsuit issue.

In 2010, an israeli modeler (Yours truly) had gotten the cover of the February issue of “Structure”.

Indeed it’s hard to say which is more sexy. We will of course follow up with an in-depth coverage of the paper (regretably just of the latter).

PDB fetcher Google Gadget

Have you ever read a paper, stumbled upon some random PDB id and was itching to see the structure ? maybe play with it for several minutes ? get a general impression ? but, alas, you were too lazy to actually go the PDB and download the structure! Carson Andorf provides an easy solution in the form of a “PDB Structure Viewer with Sting!” Google Gadget. 

Just enter your PDB id and viola you get an image of the structure another click on the image would let you play around with it. Add this to your iGoogle page and you’ll never shun another molecule again. And while your at it, add the macromolecular modeling blog feed to your iGoogle page as well Add to Google  :)
