MovieMaker Version 1.0

black line

MovieMaker is a web server that allows short (~10 sec), downloadable movies to be generated of protein dynamics. It accepts PDB files or PDB accession numbers as input and automatically outputs colorful animations covering a wide range of protein motions and other dynamic processes. Users have the option of animating 1) simple rotation 2) morphing between two end conformers 3) short-scale, picosecond vibrations; 4) ligand docking; 5) protein oligomerization; 6) mid-scale nanosecond (ensemble) motions; and 7) protein folding/unfolding. Note: MovieMaker is not a molecular dynamics server and does not perform MD calculations. You can view some sample protein movies by visiting the MovieMaker Gallery.
