A production release candidate (version 1.11.1) is now available. Please try it and report any problems. See the release notes for what's been fixed since 1.11. The 1.11 release series will be the last to support 32-bit builds.(Previous news...)
UCSF Chimera is a highly extensible program for interactive visualization and analysis of molecular structures and related data, including density maps, supramolecular assemblies, sequence alignments, docking results, trajectories, and conformational ensembles. High-quality images and animations can be generated. Chimera includes complete documentation and several tutorials, and can be downloaded free of charge for academic, government, non-profit, and personal use. Chimera is developed by the Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI), funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIGMS P41-GM103311).
UCSF ChimeraX (or simply ChimeraX) is the next-generation molecular visualization program from the RBVI, following UCSF Chimera. It is in early development and not yet publicly released, with release anticipated sometime in 2016.
The image shows the structure of the human OX2 orexin receptor bound to the insomnia drug suvorexant, Protein Data Bank entry 4s0v. The drug is shown as spheres colored by element, and the receptor as ribbons with secondary structure elements rainbow-colored from blue at the N-terminus to red at the C-terminus. (More samples...)
