UCSF ChimeraX (or simply ChimeraX) is the next-generation molecular visualization program from the Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI), following UCSF Chimera. ChimeraX can be downloaded free of charge for academic, government, nonprofit, and personal use. Commercial users, please see licensing.
ChimeraX is developed with support from National Institutes of Health R01-GM129325 and the Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Different representations of nucleotides can be shown with the nucleotides command or Toolbar icons. Options include filled rings, slabs for bases (box, muffler, or ellipsoid shape), bumps on slabs to show base orientation, simple tubes instead of ribose atoms, and continuous or broken ladder rungs. Nucleotide representations can be the same color as the ribbon or a different color, and multiple nucleotide styles can be used within a single structure.

The architecture of the human ribosome has been determined at near-atomic resolution by electron microscopy (Anger et al., Nature 497:80 (2013)). The structure, comprising 82 proteins and five RNA molecules, is shown with shadows cast from all directions to accentuate depth. In the background are schematic representations of contacts between the component molecules.
