Molecular visualization in the Jupyter Notebook with nglview
19 04 16 - Filed in: iPython Programming Molecule viewer
I'm making increasing use of iPython notebooks and this package looks like it will be very useful.
nglview is a Python package that makes it easy to visualize molecular systems, including trajectories, directly in the Jupyter Notebook. The recent 0.4.0 release of nglview brings a convenient interface for visualizing MDAnalysis Universe and AtomGroup objects directly:
The notebook widget allows you to rotate and zoom the molecule and lets you select atoms by clicking on the molecule.
Easily installed using PIP
pip install nglview
There have been a number of comments and responses via twitter highlighting this superb demo.
The project is on Github, feel free to contribute!
