PyMOL

PyMOL

PyMOL is an OpenGL molecular graphics system written in Python.

PyMOL is a molecular graphics system with an embedded Python interpreter designed for real-time visualization and rapid generation of high-quality molecular graphics images and animations.

It is fully extensible and available free to everyone via the "Python" license. Although a newcomer to the field, PyMOL can already be used to generate stunning images and animations with unprecedented ease. It can also perform many other valuable tasks (such as editing PDB files) to assist you in your research.
