Annotated Figure Legends
We are exploring the use of Sketchfab and UCSF-Chimera to generate interactive figure legends for online scientific journals.
As shown below, still image figure legends can be converted into interactive 3D applications and embedded into a websites, social medial platforms and online journals.

Figure 2 | The structure of gp20. (a) Charge distribution on the outer surface of dodecameric gp20. Blue and red colours correspond to 10 kTe positive
and negative potential, respectively. (b) Charge distribution on the inner surface of dodecameric gp20. (c) Ribbon drawing of the gp20 monomer structure
with each domain colour-coded.
