Since the invention of computers, application developers have been working to create software that proffers solution to challenges across industry verticals. The scientific world is not left out of this innovation. With this application, researchers can visualize molecules and carry out analysis tasks on proteins to check their density, trajectories, and surfaces in a computer-generated 3D model.
This application features cutting-edge rendering tools that are capable of visualizing 3D molecule structure down to the atomic level. The application can also handle the X-ray crystallographic structure of carbohydrates, metabolites, sugars, proteins, DNA, RNA, and much more. Besides molecular visualization, this program can also be used to render an artistic visualization of molecular structures.
Unlike other parallel applications, this program is designed with simplicity at heart. It can be used by both computer beginners and experts. The program has extensive support for molecular formats including PDB, SDF, and electron density maps. It is capable of rendering output as images and movies, thanks to the inbuilt animation tool called original. It is also capable of generating morphs between different molecules. Other features of this program include customizable frame rates, loop and ray-frame tracing, image frame catching, slow-motion simulation, export of document to VRML, and many more.
It is part from science category and is licensed as shareware for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit platform and can be used as a free trial until the trial period will end. The PyMOL demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions compared with the full version.
