This is the primary home and download site for the Jmol Tutorial-Authoring Template (JTAT), which was released in , and updated in Jmol Tutorial. Jmol is a free open source applet developed by the people at www. for the interactive display of molecules in web browsers. No plugins. Tutorial for using Jmol with course pages in Biochemistry I ( & ) at Carnegie Mellon University.

Jmol Application ‘s Export to Web Page: To learn more about the development of Jmol please refer to an article by Angel Herraez that was published recently in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education August, Limitations compared to JTAT are: Page last modified on August 29,at During this time a new application called Jmol has emerged as a viable replacement for both Rasmol and Chime. The command line provides access to all the commands that are available tot Jmol and, therefore, is the most powerful way to enter commands.

The Rasmol Script console window can also be opened by selecting “Scripts Rasmol and Chime complement each other nicely, with Rasmol being used by web developers to create and test the Rasmol scripts that they plan to use with Chime. Despite name, pdb files can be used to represent almost any molecule. Bound to the enzyme is fructose-1,6-bisphosphate [FBP], which is an allosteric effector for the enzyme, and phlosphoglycolic acid [PGA], which is a substrate analogue and inhibitor for the enzyme.

These are show as spacefilling models and colored to atom type.

Click here to see how it looks. Editing wiki text is easier than HTML. Obtaining, Installing and Using Jmol Two things are required to view the molecules in this tutorial; java must be installed on the computer, and javascript must be enabled in the browser used to view the tutorials. Considerably more challenging to use than Proteopedia, but you have more control and the product tutorial is more user friendly.

Java is required on the computer that the tutorials are being viewed from and javascript must be gutorial from within the browser being used.


The Rasmol Homepage is a good location to find these resources. Before you get started.

Jmol Wiki – Jmol Tutorials

In the standalone version of Jmol there are three ways enter commands. JTAT Download a template for building tutorials that will display in a web browser. At present there are two page formats: Introduction Before you get started Creating models Commands Rendering.

The tutorial must be uploaded to a server to provide online access, or the tutorial can be shown offline. Two things are required to view the molecules in this tutorial; java must be installed on the computer, and javascript must be enabled in the browser used to view the tutorials.

Here you can create customized molecular scenes, which will be online immediately. If you are using a one-button mouse on a Mac, a ctrl-click can be used instead. Supports multiple chapters and views comparing 2, 3, or 4 molecules side by side with synchronization of mouse-directed rotations or zooms. Extensive help and documentation, including HTML quick-reference.

Because it is Java based is essentially independent of the platform that it runs on, when used from a web page it requires only a Java enabled browser.

Jmol Tutorials

Please send suggestions for improvement to the email above. The tutorials in this course use Jmol to allow the reader to open molecules usually pdb files and view them interactively. The development of Jmol is currently proceeding at a heady pace, so we can expect this version to soon be tutorlal by newer version with expanded capabilities.

It can be run as either a standalone application like Rasmol or embedded in webpages like Chime.

Jmol is a Java-based molecular modeling application that can be used either in a stand-alone mode, or as an embedded object in webpages. Features include reading a variety of file types and output from quantum chemistry programs, and animation of multi-frame files and computed normal modes from quantum programs 1.

The popup menus are also available when Jmol is embedded into a web page. Insert molecular views with buttons and descriptions using a text tutoiral.

Open Instructs you to select “Open” from the “File” menu in the menu bar. Chime was developed at Molecular Design Limited MDL and took the Rasmol code and modified it so that it could be used as a web browser plug-in to display three-dimensional, interactive molecular models from webpages.


These commands are either executed when a plug-in is loaded or can be activated by a visitor to the site using buttons and other control elements. It is an open-source, Java based application that has the same look and feel as Rasmol and Chime tutoriao can interpret all of the Rasmol and Chime commands.

Some knowledge of Jmol scripting language is helpful, but anything you can do from menus requires no scripting. Throughout the tutorials, clicking the links labeled “View this molecule interactively” will open new browser window in which the Jmol Applet will start and display the molecule. There is another console window that may open when Jmol is launched that is titled ” Jmol console”.

Rasmol was written in the early ‘s by Roger Sayle as a standalone application and was distributed free of charge. Your tutorial will include a slider for zooming or slabbingspin toggle and centering buttons, details that display only when requested, and “How To” put views in Powerpoint slides, etc.

Because Jmol ‘s interface is derived from Rasmol and Chimethe resources available for these two tutroial are useful for leaning how to use Jmol. For Chime the commands are coded into the web page by titorial author. Shown above is a Jmol model for the enzyme pyruvate kinase, which catalyzes the last reaction in the glycolytic pathway.

Advantages compared to JTAT: One of the items in the popup menu is “Console On the File menu of the Jmol application as distinct from the web browser mode is Export to Web Page. The Jmol window has a menu bar with a very limited number of commands. Recent Changes All Admin.
