CCL: DeLano Scientific Announces Support for PyMOL/MOE Integration

DeLano Scientific’s PyMOL Reads Chemical Computing Group’s dot-MOE Files

A practical way to visualize and share results from the Molecular Operating Environment!

PALO ALTO, October 4, 2007 – DeLano Scientific LLC (DelSciLLC) announces dot-MOE (.MOE) support in its current PyMOL 1.0 builds.  Users of Chemical Computing Groups’ Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) are encouraged to adopt PyMOL as a means of visualizing and sharing results obtained > from MOE.

Warren L. DeLano, Ph.D., Principal of DelSciLLC, thought to himself, “Gee, our PyMOL Incentive Builds have been able to do this for a while, but we never got around to issuing a press release, so why not get busy while the getting’s good?”  Here’s the scoop: 

“Lots of scientists do modeling with MOE, and lots of scientists communicate results with PyMOL.  Now it’s easy to do both – just save your work from MOE as a ‘dot-MOE’ file and then open it up into PyMOL.  Voila, it’s just that simple!”

Current PyMOL users can open and visualize multiple MOE files simultaneously for giving presentations, to make movies, to render publication-quality figures, or to share results with their partners and colleagues.  Once read in, dot-MOE content can be saved out and shared through standard PyMOL session files. Please note, however, that official PyMOL 1.x builds are required – the dot-MOE reading capability is not part of Open-Source PyMOL.  Rather, this is an extra benefit for users who sponsor the PyMOL project by purchasing a subscription.
