Raster3D 3.0-7 – Generate High Quality Raster Images of Proteins or other Molecules

Raster3D 3.0-7

:: DESCRIPTION

Raster3D is a set of tools for generating high quality raster images of proteins or other molecules. The core program renders spheres, triangles, cylinders, and quadric surfaces with specular highlighting, Phong shading, and shadowing. It uses an efficient software Z-buffer algorithm which is independent of any graphics hardware. Ancillary programs process atomic coordinates from PDB files into rendering descriptions for pictures composed of ribbons, space-filling atoms, bonds, ball+stick, etc. Raster3D can also be used to render pictures composed in other programs such as Molscript in glorious 3D with highlights, shadowing, etc. Output is to pixel image files with 24 bits of color information per pixel.

iMolview 1.9.5 – iPhone, iPad and Android App for Browsing Protein, DNA & Drug Molecules in 3D

iMolview 1.9.5

:: DESCRIPTION

iMolview is an app for the iPhone , iPad and Android that lets you browse protein, DNA, and drug molecules in 3D. The app has a direct link to the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and DrugBank and has a fast and easy to use interface. Touching the molecules via the screen allows you to interact immediately with the 3D structures in a unique way. You can zoom in and out, rotate, spin, pan, and clip the 3D molecules with your finger tips in ways that are impossible using a traditional mouse and desktop computer.

ICM-Browser 3.9-2b – Molecules & Sequence Alignments Visualization

ICM-Browser 3.9-2b

:: DESCRIPTION

ICM-Browser provides a biologist or a chemist with direct access to the treasures of structural biology and protein families.It reads a variety of file formats directly from the database web-sites including: PDB, chemical, electron density maps, sequence and alignment files. ICM-Browser provides a rich professional molecular graphics environment with powerful representations of proteins, DNA and RNA, and multiple sequence alignments.

When you purchase the license ICM-Browser will become ICM-Browser-Pro.ICM-Browser-Pro is a high quality visualizer and annotator for three dimensional molecular structures, sequences, alignments, chemical spreadsheets and biological data. It allows you to read data from multiple file formats, annotate the data, and write multi-slide documents in a single small cross-platform file. ICM Browser Pro is well suited for creating, storing and sharing structural, biological and chemical information. The files can then be opened and viewed with the free ICM Browser.

VMD 1.9.4 – Molecular Graphics Viewer

VMD 1.9.4

:: DESCRIPTION

VMD is designed for modeling, visualization, and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. It may be used to view more general molecules, as VMD can read standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) files and display the contained structure. VMD provides a wide variety of methods for rendering and coloring a molecule: simple points and lines, CPK spheres and cylinders, licorice bonds, backbone tubes and ribbons, cartoon drawings, and others. VMD can be used to animate and analyze the trajectory of a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In particular, VMD can act as a graphical front end for an external MD program by displaying and animating a molecule undergoing simulation on a remote computer.
