Molecular Graphics System

Molecular Graphics System



PyMOL is a molecular graphics system targeted at medium to large biomolecules like proteins. It can generate high-quality publication-ready molecular graphics images and animations.

Features include:

  • Visualization of molecules, molecular trajectories and surfaces of crystallography data or orbitals
  • Molecular builder and sculptor
  • Internal raytracer and movie generator
  • Fully extensible and scriptable via a Python interface File formats PyMOL can read include PDB, XYZ, CIF, MDL Molfile, ChemDraw, CCP4 maps, XPLOR maps and Gaussian cube maps.
