VRNetzer: A Virtual Reality Network Analysis Platform
Networks offer a powerful way to visualize and analyze complex systems. However, depending on the size and complexity of the network, many visualizations are limited. Protein interactions in the human body constitute such a complex system that can hardly be visualized.
The VRNetzer is a project collaboration between CeMM Adjunct PI Jörg Menche's group and other medical groups, such as Kaan Boztug's, CeMM Adjunct PI, LBI-RUD Director and CCRI Scientific Director.The immersive virtual reality platform including VR glasses allows the user to dive deep into the massive molecular networks behind genetic diseases.
A specifically developed device including VR glasses allows the user to dive deep into the massive molecular networks behind genetic diseases. The unique VR experience provides a first glimpse on how humans and machines will interact in the future to visualize and explore complex medical data to the benefit of research and patients.
