Subject: [SCIART] Molecular Maya finally released!
I wanted to give a big thank you, to the gnsi community! I just came
back from the recent ascb meeting where I saw gael mcgill finally
release "molecular maya" the toolkit for Maya, which is free for
anyone using Maya and finally finally available! (Academic licenses
for Maya are $350, although, molecular Maya is free, it requires
Maya.) Check out http://www.molecularmovies.org and check out the
At the conference, I heard lots of great feedback about the bioviz
listserv and the broad range of participents, probably half of which,

interest group is probably outside general gnsi territory, but I think
it's relevent, and it has been influenced from the gnsi listserv and
I wanted to also fill you in on the upcoming, publicly available, ascb
image library, for cell biology images including microscopy,
animation, video, illustrations and other data relating to cell
biology, thanks to an arra grant and the blood, sweat and te It's
bound to become a great reference for the community. It's being built
on the open source "open microscopy environment", omero.
