       BALLView - A free molecular modeling and molecular graphics tool


       BALLView [Molecular-file]


       BALLView  BALLView  provides  fast  OpenGL-based  visualization  of  molecular structures,
       molecular mechanics methods (minimization, MD simulation using the AMBER and CHARMM  force
       fields), calculation and visualization of electrostatic properties (FDPB).

       BALLView  is  based  on  BALL  (Biochemical Algorithms Library) , which is currently being
       developed in the groups of Oliver Kohlbacher (University of Tuebingen,  Germany),  Andreas
       Hildebrandt  (Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany), and Hans-Peter Lenhof (Saarland
       University, Saarbruecken, Germany). BALL is an application framework in C++ that has  been
       specifically   designed   for   rapid  software  development  in  Molecular  Modeling  and
       Computational Molecular Biology.  It provides an extensive set of data structures as  well
       as classes for Molecular Mechanics, advanced solvation methods, comparison and analysis of
       protein structures, file import/export, and visualization.

       BALLView is available under the LGPL licence.



       To run BALLView, simply type:



              BALLView file.pdp

       where file.pdb is your PDB file. BALLView also supports HIN, MOL, MOL2 and SD files.

       BALLView provides HTML documentation, that is available in  the  application  itself  (see
       Help menu).

       This  package also includes Python example scripts, that can be run in BALLView.  They can
       be found under /usr/share/BALL/PYTHON.
