A web service for surface reconstruction
Participant : David Cohen-Steiner.
In collaboration with Frank Da and Andreas Fabri. http://cgal.inria.fr/Reconstruction/ .
The surface reconstruction algorithm developed by D. Cohen-Steiner and F. Da using cgal is available as a web service . Via the web, the user uploads the point cloud data set to the server and obtains a Vrml file of the reconstructed surface, which gets visualized in the browser of the user. This allows the user to check if the algorithm fits his/her needs, to learn how to adjust the parameters, before contacting Inria to obtain an executable. It also provides us with the opportunity to collect real-world data sets used for testing and improving our reconstruction algorithms.
Modeling macro-molecular interfaces
Participant : Frédéric Cazals.
As described in section 6.7.2 , we recently proposed an interface model of (macro-)molecular interfaces based upon power diagrams  . The corresponding software, Intervor , has been made available to the community from the web site http://bombyx.inria.fr/Intervor/intervor.html . Our publication appeared in the September issue of Protein Science , yet, the server has been used about 200 times in July - August. To the best of our knowledge, this code is the only publicly available one for analyzing interfaces in complexes.
