BALLView provides fast OpenGL-based visualization of molecular structures, molecular mechanics methods (minimization, MD simulation using the AMBER, CHARMM, and MMFF94 force fields), calculation and visualization of electrostatic properties (FDPB) and molecular editing features.

BALLView can be considered a graphical user interface on the basis of BALL (Biochemical Algorithms Library) with a focus on the most common demands of protein chemists and biophysicists in particular. It is developed in the groups of Hans-Peter Lenhof (Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany) and Oliver Kohlbacher (University of Tuebingen, Germany). BALL is an application framework in C++ that has been specifically designed for rapid software development in Molecular Modeling and Computational Molecular Biology. It provides an extensive set of data structures as well as classes for Molecular Mechanics, advanced solvation methods, comparison and analysis of protein structures, file import/export, and visualization.

DRAWxtl reads a basic description of the crystal structure, which includes unit-cell parameters, space group, atomic coordinates, thermal parameters or a Fourier map, and outputs a geometry object that contains polyhedra, planes, lone-pair cones, spheres or ellipsoids, bonds, iso-surface Fourier contours and the unit-cell boundary.

Four forms of graphics are produced:

  • an OpenGL window for immediate viewing
  • the Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-RAY) scene language for publication-quality drawings
  • the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) for dissemination across the Internet
  • a Postscript rendering of the OpenGL window for those who want high-quality output but do not have POV-RAY installed.

File formats DRAWxtl can read include CIF, FDAT, FullProf (pcr), GSAS, SCHAKAL, SHELX, DISCUS and WIEN2k.

Garlic is written for the investigation of membrane proteins. It may be used to visualize other proteins, as well as some geometric objects. This version of garlic recognizes PDB format version 2.1. Garlic may also be used to analyze protein sequences.

It only depends on the X libraries, no other libraries are needed.

Features include:

  • The slab position and thickness are visible in a small window.
  • Atomic bonds as well as atoms are treated as independent drawable objects.
  • The atomic and bond colors depend on position. Five mapping modes are available (as for slab).
  • Capable to display stereo image.
  • Capable to display other geometric objects, like membrane.
  • Atomic information is available for atom covered by the mouse pointer. No click required, just move the mouse pointer over the structure!
  • Capable to load more than one structure.
  • Capable to draw Ramachandran plot, helical wheel, Venn diagram, averaged hydrophobicity and hydrophobic moment plot.
  • The command prompt is available at the bottom of the main window. It is able to display one error message and one command string.

A GTK+ based program for the display and manipulation of isolated molecules, periodic systems and crystalline habits. It is in development, but is nonetheless fairly functional. It has the following features:

  • Support for several file types (CIF, BIOSYM, XYZ, XTL, MARVIN, and GULP)
  • A simple molecular creation and manipulation tool
  • A dialogue for creating starting configurations for molecular dynamics simulations
  • Assorted tools for visualization (geometry information, region highlighting, etc.)
  • Animation of BIOSYM files (also rendered animations, see below)

GDIS also allows you to perform the following functions through other packages:

  • Model rendering (courtesy of POVRay)
  • Energy minimization (courtesy of GULP)
  • Morphology calculation (courtesy of cdd)
  • Space group processing (courtesy of SgInfo)
  • View the Periodic Table (courtesy of GPeriodic)
  • Load additional filetypes, such as PDB (courtesy of Babel)

p4VASP is a visualization suite for the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package (VASP). It contains an extensible GUI framework, that can be used to view material structure, density of states, band-structure and more.

It provides a Python library, that greatly simplifies the process of manipulation of the VASP input and output data in Python scripts. P4vasp utilizes also many handy routines and objects e.g. for creating 2D graphs, data storage (xml,DOM) or simple matrix library.

QuteMol is an interactive, high quality molecular visualization system. It exploits the current GPU capabilities through OpenGL shaders to offer an array of innovative visual effects. QuteMol visualization techniques are aimed at improving clarity and an easier understanding of the 3D shape and structure of large molecules or complex proteins.

Qutemol uses advanced OpenGL techniques and might not work correctly with all video cards and drivers.

Features QuteMol offers include:

  • Real time ambient occlusion
  • Depth aware silhouette enhancement
  • Ball-and-stick, space-filling and liquorice visualization modes
  • High resolution antialiased snapshots for creating publication quality renderings
  • Automatic generation of animated gifs of rotating molecules for web page animations
  • Interactive rendering of macromolecules (>100k atoms)

QuteMol reads PDB files as input.

RasMol is a molecular graphics program intended for the visualisation of proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules. The program is aimed at display, teaching and generation of publication quality images.

The program reads in a molecule coordinate file and interactively displays the molecule on the screen in a variety of colour schemes and molecule representations. Currently available representations include depth-cued wireframes, 'Dreiding' sticks, spacefilling (CPK) spheres, ball and stick, solid and strand biomolecular ribbons, atom labels and dot surfaces.

Supported input file formats include Protein Data Bank (PDB), Tripos Associates' Alchemy and Sybyl Mol2 formats, Molecular Design Limited's (MDL) Mol file format, Minnesota Supercomputer Center's (MSC) XYZ (XMol) format, CHARMm format, CIF format and mmCIF format files.

This package installs two versions of RasMol, rasmol-gtk has a modern GTK-based user interface and rasmol-classic is the version with the old Xlib GUI.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: rasmol-doc

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.

V_Sim visualizes atomic structures such as crystals, grain boundaries, molecules and so on (either in binary format, or in plain text format).

The rendering is done in pseudo-3D with spheres (atoms) or arrows (spins). The user can interact through many functions to choose the view, set the bindings, draw cutting planes, compute surfaces from scalar fields, duplicate nodes, measure geometry... Moreover V_Sim allows one to export the view as images in PNG, JPG, PDF (bitmap), SVG (scheme) and other formats. Some tools are also available to colorize atoms from data values or to animate on screen many position files.

Viewmol is able to graphically aid in the generation of molecular structures for computations and to visualize their results.

At present Viewmol includes input filters for Discover, DMol3, Gamess, Gaussian 9x/03, Gulp, Mopac, PQS, Turbomole, and Vamp outputs as well as for PDB files. Structures can be saved as Accelrys' car-files, MDL files, and Turbomole coordinate files. Viewmol can generate input files for Gaussian 9x/03. Viewmol's file format has been added to OpenBabel so that OpenBabel can serve as an input as well as an output filter for coordinates.

XCrySDen is a crystalline and molecular structure visualisation program, which aims at display of isosurfaces and contours, which can be superimposed on crystalline structures and interactively rotated and manipulated. It can run on most UNIX platforms, without any special hardware requirements.

XCrySDen allows for real-time capture of display. Several movie encoders are supported, in particular for Animated-GIF convert (imagemagick), gifsicle, or whirlgif are necessary. For AVI/MPEG mencoder or ppmtompeg (netpbm) is required. For window dumps either imagemagick or xwd (x11-apps) needs to be present.
