The design, implementation, and capabilities of an extensible visualization system, UCSF Chimera, are discussed. [] Key Method Two unusual extensions are presented: Multiscale, which adds the ability to visualize large-scale molecular assemblies such as viral coats, and Collaboratory, which allows researchers to share a Chimera session interactively despite being at separate locales.

TLDR
KiNG is a mature platform for rapidly creating and capitalizing on scientific visualizations, invaluable as a research tool, and a powerful presentation tool, whether for structure browsing, teaching, direct 3D display on the web, or as a method for creating pictures and videos for publications.

Enhancing UCSF Chimera through web services

TLDR
This work describes how UCSF Chimera is enhanced, a program for the interactive visualization and analysis of molecular structures and related data, through the addition of several web services, and illustrates its use of web services with an example workflow that interleaves use of these services with interactive manipulation of molecular sequences and structures.

ViewDock TDW: high-throughput visualization of virtual screening results

TLDR
ViewDock TDW is a modification of the pre-existing ViewDock Chimera extension used to visualize results of virtual screening experiments by combing TDW hardware and an enhanced ViewDocking interface, dozens of ligand-protein complexes are rendered simultaneously to parallelize the analysis of candidate ligands.
