  • Description

    UCSF ChimeraX (or simply ChimeraX) is the next-generation molecular visualization program from the Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI), following UCSF Chimera. ChimeraX can be used free of charge for academic, government, nonprofit, and personal use. Commercial users, please see licensing.

    Compared to Chimera, ChimeraX has better graphics (e.g., interactive ambient shadows), handles large structures (millions of atoms) much faster, and has a more modern, single-window user interface. ChimeraX will have documented programming interfaces and an easy-to-use “Tool Shed” web repository of extensions.

  • Usage Notes

    This ChimeraX alpha release is not currently available for CentOS 6 linux.
