Promoting Molecular Visual Literacy

Welcome to the BioMolViz Library! We're a group of educators, assessment experts, and biomolecular visualization enthusiasts who are passionate about promoting visual literacy in the biochemistry and molecular biology community. We have developed a Biomolecular Visualization Framework that outlines 12 key themes in visual literacy and provides learning goals and objectives (

Our current project, funded by the NSF, focuses on using the Framework to design effective biomolecular visualization assessments for instructors to use in their classrooms. We offer workshops where instructors can work together to write and review assessments, which are then evaluated by an expert panel and field tested in classrooms at various institutions.

The BioMolViz Library is where you can find these assessments at various stages of the review and validation process. We invite you to browse our library and use our assessments to evaluate the visual literacy of your students. Thank you for visiting!
