structureViz: Linking Cytoscape and UCSF Chimera

John H Morris et al. Bioinformatics.

Abstract

structureViz is a Cytoscape plug-in that links the visualization of biological networks provided by Cytoscape with the visualization and analysis of macromolecular structures and sequences provided by UCSF Chimera. When combined with Cytoscape and Chimera, structureViz provides the first tool that links these two critical aspects of computational analysis in a straightforward manner. structureViz includes commands to open structures in Chimera and align them using Chimera's sequence-structure analysis tools. When a structure is opened, structureViz provides an alternative interface to Chimera: the Cytoscape Molecular Structure Navigator. This interface uses a tree-based paradigm to allow users to select and affect the display of models, chains and residues, mostly through the use of context menus.
