NDKmol -- Molecular Viewer for Android

== About ==

NDKmol is a molecular viewer for Android. You can view three dimensional structures of proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules. NDKmol supports most of common representations for molecules, such as ribbon, trace, stick, sphere and line. NDKmol also supports symmetry operations; biological assemblies and crystal packing can be displayed. You can search and download structures from RCSB PDB and NCBI Pubchem.

NDKmol has almost same functionality as GLmol, which is written in
WebGL/Javascript and runs on Web browsers. You can try GLmol at http://webglmol.sourceforge.jp/index-en.html

== Features ==

* Read PDB or SDF/MOL file
* Rotate/Translate/Zoom model by finger
* Representations
- Line
- Stick
- Sphere(van der Waals radius)
- Alpha carbon trace
- Ribbon (Thin or Thick)
- Strand
- B factor tube
- Nucleic acid ladder
- Nucleic acid line
- solvent 'stars'
* Smoothing of beta-sheets
* Coloring
- By chain
- By secondary structure(when defined in SHEET/HELIX records)
- By Elements
- Gradation (a.k.a chainbow)
- B factor
- polar/nonpolar
* Crystallography
- Display unit cell
- Show crystal packing (when defined in REMARK section)
- Display biological assembly (when defined in REMARK section)

== How to Use ==

When launched, NDKmol automatically loads Porin (PDBID: 2POR) as an example. You can rotate the molecule by your finger.

To zoom or translate the molecule, press MENU button in your phone/tablet and select the mode. Two-finger gestures are also supported.

Everything else can be done from the MENU.

To load other PDB files, please put the file in "PDB" directory of the SD card and select "Open" command in the MENU. You can also download structures directly from RCSB PDB and NCBI PubChem web server. Select "Search and Download" in the menu.

Recently changed in this version

Version 0.92 (20121103)

* Fixed "Search PDB" to work with recent server update

To users of devices without MENU button:
there should be a way to open MENU, for example, pressing
HOME button long. Please consult the manual of your device.

Version 0.91 (20120830)

* Improved "color by chain"

    Great work. The only thing required is to allow the nucleic acid structures to render as well. Which makes it better

    I recently purchased a Note 10.1 2014, and I was curious if there were any android apps that would let me fetch and view protein structures from the PDB. This app far exceeded my expectations. It has the smoothest rendering of any viewer I've used, including desktop applications. It allows various color options, display of the biological unit, fetching from the PDB. I'm sure there are some advance

    Extremely well built, just one thing though. Add drawing and SMILES capabilities plz.

    Well done. It would be nice if you add some sort of sequence instrument like s button in pymol.

    the image is worsethan anything I have seen and you cannot manipulate the molecule as you should.
