Abalone is a tool especially designed to help students, teachers and scientists who want to create both simple and complex molecules and explore them in 3D mode. The application displays a user-friendly interface but that only applies if you have used similar software or possess a decent amount of knowledge on the subject.
Its graphic user interface is well structured and organized which makes it very easy to handle after you get used to all of its features and tools, and there’s a lot of them.
Perform molecular simulations
Abalone comes with a wide array of tools and feature for molecular modeling and simulation. It provides a large library of already built simulations that you can open, study and customize.
The application offers a number of ways in which you can view the models, CPK, wire frame, stick, ball and stick, as well as CPK wire frame, each of them being convenient for certain models or systems.
Construct chain molecules
A core feature of Abalone is its molecule chain builder that allows you to create molecules that correspond to scientific standards. Apart from that, the application enables you to build crystals, charges strips and also gives you the freedom to freely draw what you need.
To make both models and analysis results as accurate as possible, Abalone provides a geometry editor that you can use to edit model parameters and perform various measurements.
A powerful biomolecular building tool
With the above to consider and a lot more to discover in the numerous functions, it’s more than appropriate to say that if you’re looking for a practical and feature-packed biomolecular simulator, then you can try Abalone.
