Explore the world of molecules with Molecule World™!
Molecule World puts 3D chemicals, proteins, DNA, and RNA at your fingertips. Turn molecules around. Make them larger or smaller. Draw molecules in different ways to discover new things. Explore molecular properties by using color to show different elements, charge, residues, hydrophobicity, individual chains, and position. Use rainbow coloring to see how proteins fold.
Molecule World is fun for everyone, especially scientists and science students. This easy to use app is appropriate for students of all ages, from middle school through graduate school. Capture images to send to your friends or paste in homework assignments.
Younger students will gain an appreciation for the sizes of smaller compounds like water compared to complex molecules like DNA and proteins. Older students will be able to explore structures and identify important features like membrane-spanning regions, DNA-binding domains, and sites where proteins and DNA interact with other molecules. Teachers will benefit from our companion sets of learning activities.
Created with funding from the National Science Foundation, Molecule World is the first iPad app that supports Cn3D formatted files in addition to PDB files and chemical structures from PubChem. Download and view thousands of proteins, DNA, RNA, and chemical structures from extensive public databases at the NCBI, PubChem, and PDB.
Please visit our web site and sign up for our newsletter for more details and fun ideas.
- View large molecules from the NCBI or PDB as Cn3D files or PDB files
- View protein, DNA, and RNA sequences
- View chemicals from PubChem in a 3D format
- Coloring styles highlight chemical properties of amino acids
- Structures can be drawn in different ways (ball and stick, space fill, tubes)
- Identify elements in the structure or properties of amino acids with the color key
- Capture pictures of favorite molecules to share with friends
What's New in Version 2.1.0
New rendering styles: backbone view with side-chains hidden, backbone view with oxygens hidden
Identify binding sites for other molecules, drugs, or small chemicals by selecting nearby residues
Search and select sequences by pattern or one letter code
Use mixed drawing and coloring modes
Improved coloring for smaller chemicals (water, glucose, etc.)
