Tool to visualize the macromolecular structure
  9 Screenshots
CueMol is a unique, easy to use application for macromolecular structure visualization (CueMol was formerly called "Que").

CueMol aims to visualize the crystallographic models of macromolecules with the user-friendly interfaces.

Currently supported files are molecular coordinates (PDB format), electron density (CCP4, CNS , and BRIX formats), MSMS surface data, and GRASP and APBS electrostatic potential map.

Main features:

  • Display proteins and nucleic acids
Supported input format is PDB (molecular coordinates).
  • simple stick model
  • main-chain trace (Calpha backbone, phosphate backbone, ...)
  • ball-and-stick model
  • CPK model
  • Functions as a molecular viewer
  • Residue selection by clicking
  • Residue selection by chain and residue numbers
  • Change or create new display for the selected residues
  • Display symmetric molecules
  • Display unit cell
  • Hardware stereo support
  • Display the distance between atoms
  • Dump/restore the current state to/from the file (workspace)
  • Display electron-density maps
Supported input formats are CCP4 (type2), X-PLOR/CNS (ascii), and BRIX
  • Mesh and surface display of electron-density maps (you can change the contour level dynamically!!)
  • Display electron density of an arbitrary (cubic) region.
  • Geometric object (solid/dashed lines)
  • Molecular surface object (generated by MSMS program)

What's New in version
  • Fixed a bug that can not be copy & paste the Object
  • I have to be able to morphing forced even if the atom number do not match MorphMol
  • and implement additional UI of MorphMol / MolAnim to anim_panel
  • I have to choose the conversion to MorphMol from MolCoord implementation and start-up menu to convert to MorphMol from MolCoord (only add) implement morphanim-tool
