Upcoming Events


UCSF ChimeraX

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 ChimeraX commercial 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.

Feature Highlight

Cartoon/Nucleotide Presets

The Presets menu includes a few different combinations of cartoon and nucleotide styles, shown here along with overall settings from the Publication preset plus lighting depthcue false. The style settings of cartoons and nucleotides can be controlled individually (and with many more possibilities than shown here) with cartoon style and nucleotides, respectively.

Example Image

HIV-1 protease B-factor coloring

B-factor Coloring

Atomic B-factor values are read from PDB and mmCIF input files and assigned as attributes that can be shown with coloring and used in atom specification. This example shows B-factor variation within a structure of the HIV-1 protease bound to an inhibitor (PDB 4hvp). For complete image setup, including positioning, color key, and label, see the command file bfactor.cxc.

Additional color key examples can be found in tutorials: Coloring by Electrostatic Potential, Coloring by Sequence Conservation
