3D Macromolecular Structures
[28 APRIL 2016] iCn3D 1.0 is now available. It is a new WebGL-based viewer for interactive viewing of three-dimensional macromolecular structures on the web, without the need to install a separate application, and enables you to:
- interactively view 3D structures and corresponding sequence data
- interactively view superpositions of similar structures
- cutomize the display of a structure and generate a URL that allows you to share the link
- incorporate iCn3D into your own pages
An example of each is accessible from the "About iCn3D" page.
iCn3D can be accessed from the molecular graphic that appears on the structure summary page for any record in the Molecular Modeling Database (MMDB). As an example, view the Tumor Suppressor P53 Complexed with DNA (1TUP) in its MMDB structure summary page, or open it directly in the basic version or advanced (full feature) version of iCn3D.
The source code is available from GitHub (https://github.com/ncbi/icn3d) for developers who would like to customize the program and/or contribute code, and for users who would like to run the program on their local computer.
[28 APRIL 2016] New structure summary pages featuring interactive molecular graphic. MMDB structure summary pages have been revised to feature interactive molecular graphics using iCn3D, a new WebGL-based viewer for three-dimensional macromolecular structures. A spin icon in the molecular graphic loads a basic version of iCn3D into the web page, enabling you to render the structure in the desired style and highlight molecules of interest by clicking on the corresponding interactions schematic. A launch icon opens the advanced (full feature) version of iCn3D in a separate window. As an example, view the MMDB summary page for Tumor Suppressor P53 Complexed With DNA (1TUP). Additional information is available in the MMDB help document and the About iCn3D page.
