Dear Colleagues,

the new major release of our

*CELLmicrocosmos 2.2.2 MembraneEditor*

is out now. This open source tool provides a 3D membrane modeling tool 
based on Java/Java WebStart for modeling PDB membranes based on Membrane 
Packing Algorithms. The shape-based visualization enables also the 
WYSIWYG modeling of larger membranes. The direct export to Jmol provides 
a fast preview of the molecular structures. Extended PDB properties 
enable the import of custom PDB files as well as the export to many 
different tools such as Gromacs. Different publications used the 
MembraneEditor already to model starting configurations for MD simulations.

But why talk a lot, if there are some videos on YouTube?


The new release 2.2.2 comes now with a number of improvements:

- APL at Voro integration (optional on Linux and Mac OS X)
- The Wanderer Rookie for high-density membranes
- Extended capabilities of the Membrane Packing Algorithm interface
- Extended protocol capabilities
- Java 7 Update 51/Open JDK+Iced Tea compatibility
- Many bug fixes

More information, an extensive documentation, as well as the link to our 
J. Chem. Inf. Model. publication you will find here:

CELLmicrocomos Workshop: Molecular Modeling

If you or your students want to learn more about molecular modeling with 
the MembraneEditor, where to get data for compositions and how to use 
PDB membranes with external tools like Gromacs, you can attend our 
workshop at the VizBi in Heidelberg (04.03.2014). More information you 
will find here:


If you are interested, please register until end of January.

Happy Modeling!
