PyMOL on the iPad is a high-performance enterprise-class 3D molecular visualizer. It was designed from the ground up for the iPad and provides beautiful molecular graphics in a highly intuitive interface.

We took mobile molecular visualization to the next level. You can display proteins, nucleic acids, and other chemical structures in a wide variety of representations: lines, sticks, ball-and-stick, spheres/CPK, ribbons, cartoons, putty, meshes, and surfaces. You can search for and download structures from the PDB, PubChem, and your own Dropbox folder. And since PyMOL on the iPad was designed to help enterprise users make better-informed decisions on-the-go, you can also securely access your own enterprise project data via our custom enterprise PyMOL server (for details, please visit

PyMOL on the iPad supports a variety of common structure formats, including PDB, SDF, MOL, MOL2, PSE (PyMOL Session), and PSW (PyMOL Show). Completing the enterprise experience, we've provided an integrated image viewer with a PDF reader. Now, you can access your structural data and methods/protocols all within one app.
