The following tutorial session is open for registration - free of charge. Please contact us if you are interested.
The Python Molecule Viewing environment (PMV) is a freely available molecular viewer designed by Michel F. Sanner and developed in the Molecular Graphics Lab. (MGL). Besides the traditional features found in other tools such as Rasmol, PMV implements a number of unique and innovative features.
In this workshop attendees will learn how to use PMV for visualizing molecules in various ways and produce publication-quality images. The commands covered include loading molecules and displaying them using various representations, computing molecular surfaces and secondary structure representations, selecting subsets of atoms for coloring and labeling and using APBS to compute and visualize electrostatic potentials. No prior knowledge of Python is required.
During this course we will introduce some of the underlying design
principles and we will point out the main differences with other
molecular visualization tools.
