PyMol Viewer v1.5.0.1

The PyMOL viewer can interpret over 30 different file formats from PDB files to multi-SDF files to volumetric electron density maps.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/pymol/v1.5.0.1

The viewer, as for all applications with a graphical interface should only be run on the large memory logon node, not one of the standard logon nodes - see the help page for the BEAR logon nodes for more details.

To run the PyMOL viewer use the command:

$ pymol

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
