Appendix D: Protein Structure Visualization tools
The following tools allow visualization of macromolecular structures in PDB format (i.e. experimental structures and models).
- DeepView/Swiss-PdbViewer: Software for protein structure analysis and visualization.
- MolScript: A program for displaying molecular 3D structures.
- OpenStructure: Open-Source Computational Structural Biology Framework.
- POV-Ray: Open Source Raytracing software.
- PyMol: A Python based open-source viewer for visualization of macromolecular structures.
- UCSF Chimera: An extensible program for interactive visualization and analysis of molecular structures.
- VMD: VMD is a molecular visualization program for displaying, animating, and analyzing large biomolecular systems using 3-D graphics and built-in scripting.
