How to 3D print a biomolecular model

Picture: Jakob Suckale

In an international collaboration with Brandeis University and the NIH of the United States, researchers from Tübingen publish a method to 3D print scientifically accurate biomolecular models. We believe physical models of this kind can facilitate an understanding of their structure-function, aid in communication between researchers, and serve as an educational tool in pedagogical endeavors.
