UCSF Chimera is an interactive molecular
modeling system that supports 3-D visualization of protein
structures. It runs as an application on the user's
computer. The UCSC Genome Browser provides links to launch
Chimera as a helper application for proteins with solved
structures deposited in PDB. Protein residues with non-synonymous
SNPs identified by LS-SNP PDB are annotated in Chimera by the UCSC
Browser for genome assemblies with LS-SNP PDB entries (currently
Links to Chimera are available in the Protein Domain
and Structure Information section of the UCSC Genes
details page when the gene is associated with a PDB structure.
Residues with non-synonymous SNPs are colored gold and labeled
with the dbSNP identifier. Additionally, for SNPs in LS-SNP
PDB, links to Chimera are generated on the SNP details page with
the residue associated with the selected SNP colored red, and the
other non-synonymous SNP residues colored gold.
Chimera version 1.3 or newer must be installed locally on your
computer from the
Download Chimera page. In order to automatically
launch Chimera from one of these links, it must be configured as
a web browser helper application as described in the
Chimera Web Data page.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The UCSC Genome Browser group is unable
to provide support for installing or using UCSF Chimera. If you need
help, please see the
UCSF Chimera Documentation
or inquire on the
Chimera users discussion mailing list.
