CD ComputaBio Introduces PyMOL Software for Bioinformatics Analysis

November 25 18:51 2022

New York, USA – November 25, 2022 – CD ComputaBio, a reliable computational biology service provider in New York, is committed to assisting research and trials, as well as providing access to the latest software, technologies, and expertise with competitive prices and fast turnarounds for researchers. The company has announced the introduction of the PyMOL software, a powerful utility for studying proteins, DNA, and other biological molecules, to support bioinformatics analysis and drug design research.

PyMOL is a powerful and comprehensive molecular visualization system that allows the vision of molecular structures in 3-D formats, renders figures artistically, and animates molecules dynamically. This molecular viewer includes a “one window” native user interface, numerous built-in tools, and additional features to assist in customizing 3-D biomolecular images. Meanwhile, data can be presented in nearly 20 different ways with PyMOL, and more than 600 settings are available to customize outputs.

The authors of PyMOL claimed that tens of thousands of scientists worldwide had chosen PyMOL to view, share, and analyze their molecular data. A quarter of all protein structures in the published scientific literature are generated using PyMOL. The software itself is well-written and easy to use, and it has become very popular among structural biologists over the last 10 years. CD ComputaBio uses the PyMOL system to visualize and analyze protein structures.

PyMOL is a powerful and comprehensive molecular visualization system for rendering and animating 3D molecular structures. The following services at CD ComputaBio are based on the PyMOL software:

Visualization Presets

CD ComputaBio provides an elegant mapping of proteins, DNA, and other macromolecules, structural analysis services, and instructions for use. PyMOL comes with a set of preset visualizations, and with just a few clicks, you can access technical views, simple views, or even views that are set up for publication. Each preset emphasizes a different aspect of the scene.

Render Figures Artistically

PyMOL has an internal raycaster for ray tracing, a graphical technique that enhances shadows and smooths jagged edges for rendering high-resolution 3-D images. CD ComputaBio provides high-resolution images for PowerPoint, projectors, and computer monitors; all you need to do is predesign desired image size (in inches) and resolution (in dots per inch).

Taking Measurements: Distances, Angles, Dihedrals, and Neighbors

PyMOL allows you to measure distances, angles, dihedrals, and, most importantly, determine neighbors. The system can calculate whether there is a potential interaction between molecules by measuring the distance between them, and the rationality of the molecular structure can be determined by bond angles. Scientists at CD ComputaBio provide molecular interaction assessment services for clients based on their proficient software skills.

Editing Molecular Objects

Scientists at CD ComputaBio can perform molecular modifications, such as creating and replacing bonds, atoms, residues, and common chemical moieties based on the PyMOL software platform. After modification, an open-source implementation, Merck Molecular Force Field (MMFF), was utilized to clean up the structure.

“Our bioinformatics solutions provide researchers with the tools necessary to effectively analyze and manage large volumes of data. It also offers a range of flexible, customizable service options to support complete and effective solutions for your project,” stated the Chief Scientist of CD ComputaBio.
