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, secondary structure, 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.

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 only 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.
