  • Description

    an immersive environment designed to ease the task of building high quality macromolecular models into low to medium resolution experimental maps, where the experimental information alone is insufficient to place individual atoms precisely. ISOLDE is implemented as a plugin to ChimeraX and can be conveniently installed via its built-in Tool Shed.
