We present the Bio Scene Graph (BioSG) for visualization of biomolecular structures based on the scene graph system OpenSG. The hierarchical model of primary, secondary and tertiary structures of molecules used in the organic chemistry is mapped to a graph of nodes when loading molecular files.
We show that using BioSG, displaying molecules can be integrated in other applications, for example in medical applications. Additionally, existing algorithms and programs can be easily adapted to display the results with BioSG.
