Molekel Website

I just noticed Molekel has a new website.
Molekel is an open-source multi-platform molecular visualization program.

  • Different methods to speed-up rendering of molecules with support for billboards and view-dependent level of detail techniques
  • Programmable shaders; standard shaders to enhance rendering quality, outline contours and perform sketch-like renderings are provided
  • Visualization of residues (ribbon or schematic)
  • Complete control over the generation of molecular surfaces (bounding box and resolution)
  • Visualization of the following surfaces:
    • Orbitals
    • Iso-surface from density matrix
    • Iso-surface from Gaussian cube grid data
    • SAS
    • SES
    • Van der Waals
  • Animation of molecular surfaces
  • Animation of vibrational modes
