Structure vizualisation


The vmd-xplor package is a combination of the X-PLOR structure determination program and VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) - a freely available molecular visualization program. This package allows manual manipulation of the protein structures to satisfy experimental NMR data, and can also be used to visualize the goodness of fit of a particular model to given restraints. The reference for vmd-xplor is:

PyMOL is a molecular graphics system with an embedded Python interpreter designed for real-time visualization and rapid generation of high-quality molecular graphics images and animations. It can also perform many other valuable tasks such as editing PDB files or display NMR restraints.


MOLMOL (MOLecule analysis and MOLecule display) is a molecular graphics program for displaying, analyzing, and manipulating the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules, with special emphasis on the study of protein or DNA structures determined by NMR. The reference for MOLMOL is:
