Hi Donnie,

That sounds absolutely fine! Personally, I find it often
difficult to assign life science related tools to specific
categories. The boundaries between biology, chemistry,
biochemistry, or physics in the life sciences have become
fairly blury to me.

My point was mainly to say that once a sci-visualisation
category exists, users might expect to find tools like
pymol, vmd, etc. in there as opposed to sci-chemistry or 
sci-biology.

best,
Markus
