This workshop is designed to introduce you to the world of biology using immersive VR environments where you can explore biology fundamentals at different scales. You will learn about some interesting techniques in biology and how we generate large amounts of data that requires visualization and interpretation. We will also introduce you to basic VR workflows and how you can easily create your own worlds to tell data stories. The workshop will give you the chance to explore VR worlds, learn some interesting aspects of biology and consider how you might use VR in your future projects.
Key words: basic biology, proteins, cells, virtual reality
Requirements: None – VR headsets and appropriate reading materials will be provided.
