PyMOL is computer software, a molecular visualization system created by Warren Lyford DeLano. It is user-sponsored,
open-source software, released under the Python License. It was commercialized initially by DeLano Scientific LLC,
which was a private software company dedicated to creating useful tools that become universally accessible to
scientific and educational communities. It is currently commercialized by Schrödinger, Inc. PyMOL can produce
high-quality 3D images of small molecules and biological macromolecules, such as proteins. According to the original
author, by 2009, almost a quarter of all published images of 3D protein structures in the scientific literature were
made using PyMOL.
This is the Open Source version of PyMOL. The source code is availabe on GitHub:
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
