• JSmol visualization


    The JSmol library is used widely for molecular structure visualization. It has envolved from a java and applet implemenation to a pure javascript implemetation features both webgl and html5 svg graphing techniques. Now the two implementation co-exist, with javascript verion more widely used for molecule less than 20000, and Java version used for large scale structure with higher performance.

    This project is built upon the simplest jsmol example. It’s used to demonstrate protein structure with different configrations, using functions provided by JSmol javascript. The protein data is retrieved from the RCSB PDB protein data bank
