CueMol

CueMol is a computer program for the macromolecular structure visualization (CueMol was formerly called "Que"). CueMol's aims are to visualize and create the publication-quality images of the macromolecular structures with user-friendly interfaces. You can find sample images created by CueMol in Gallery page. Currently supported files are molecular coordinates (PDB format), electron density (CCP4, CNS , and MTZ formats), MSMS surface data, and APBS electrostatic potential map (OpenDX format).

Powered by Mozilla XULRunner, the application framework of Firefox and Thunderbird (and other mozilla-based application as well), CueMol2 now runs under both Windows, MacOS X, and Linux in a similar GUI appearance.
