      Collapse Overview
      The Johnson Lab focuses primarily on developing algorithms to enable scientists to generate, simulate, and visualize molecular models of cells, namely a software called autoPACK/cellPACK. We continue to work with Ludovic Autin to develop ePMV in extended collaboration with Arthur Olson's lab at Scripps and on other uPy related projects. This summer we have engaged in a google summer of code project called sigViz with other UCSF and Gladstone researchers to generate cell signaling network flux simulators.

      The Johnson lab also develops outreach software that enables scientists and illustrators to interoperate the computational tools of science and art and works closely on these fronts with Tom Ferrin's Computer Graphics Lab (CGL) at UCSF as a Resource for Biocomputing, and Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI) collaborator, and with the Molecular Graphics Lab (MGL) at The Scripps Research Institute as a former National Biomedical Computational Resource (NBCR) member and current collaborator.
