MidasPlus Description

MidasPlus is capable of displaying molecular structures and surfaces from information in a PDB format file of atomic coordinates. It uses the program DMS to calculate surface parameters. Ancillary programs such as ribbons, neon and conic display very high resolution graphics. The ribbons program requires the HELIX and SHEET records to be present in the PDB file.

A hard copy of the user manual (version 2.1) is in the core area. It is also available online.
