TexMol is a molecular visualization and computation package. It allows for quick and high quality visualization of Proteins and RNA, and reads in the PDB format.
* Open source software for rendering large molecule data sets. * Written in C++, with a QT front end. The same code should work on multiple platforms, including Windows and Linux. * Reads molecular structures in PDB and PQR formats. * Produces high quality images using High end graphics cards functionalities. * Volume rendering and calculation of electron density, hydrophobicity functions. * Wireframe and smooth shaded isosurfaces. * Computes metrics including curvatures, surface areas and volumes. * Provides programmers with a simple and yet powerful hierarchical data structure of the molecules, with various torsion angles calculated. * Multiple views and multiple data set rendering.
TexMol provides a user interface to a number of CVC software packages including F2Dock (protein docking), MolSurf (molecular surfaces), MolEnergy (molecular energetics), and Pockets/Tunnel Extraction. TexMol utilizes the DPG data structure to efficiently process large molecules.
