DINO - Designed for 3D visualization of structural biology data by using OpenGL
Version: 0.9.2DINO is a realtime 3D visualization program for structural biology data. It runs under X-Windows and uses OpenGL.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Structural Biology is a multidisciplinary research area, including x-ray crystallography, structural NMR, electron microscopy, atomic-force microscopy and bioinformatics (molecular dynamics, structure predictions, surface calculations etc). The data produced by these different research areas is very diverse: atomic coordinates (models and predictions), electron density maps, surface topographs, trajectories, molecular surfaces, electrostatic potentials, sequence alignements etc.
DINO aims to visualize all this structural data in a single program and to allow the user to explore relationships between the data. There are five data-types supported: structure (atomic coordinates and trajectories), surface (molecular surfaces), scalar fields (electron densities and electrostatic potentials), topographs (surface topography scans) and geom (geometric primitives such as lines).
The number and size of the data the program can handle is only limited by the amount of RAM present in the system.
