BUDAPEST, Hungary, August 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ChemAxon, a software
solutions provider for life sciences, today announced the release of version
4.0 of its platform independent chemical editing and visualization suite
Marvin. The release includes the launch of MarvinSpace - a new tool for 3D
molecular structure visualization.
Marvin is the most advanced Java based chemical editor and visualization
toolkit available today. Marvin is comprised of 5 main user components;
MarvinSketch for creating and editing structures, queries and reactions,
MarvinView for viewing structural and non structural data, MarvinSpace for
analysing macromolecule/ligand interactions, MolConverter for generating
2D/3D coordinates, converting chemical file types and generating images and
Calculator Plugins a growing range of structure based calculations and
predictions for properties useful in life science research.
A unique feature of Marvin, as with all ChemAxon technology, is the
availability of a full application programming interface (API), which
combined with the technologies platform independence and web readiness makes
Marvin the primary choice for developing fully configurable custom
implementations for a global or browser access user base.
The version 4.0 release sees many new features and improvements such as
template based structure cleaning, 3D editing, lone pair support and an
attached data function to annotate atoms with user defined data. 3D conformer
generation is improved further giving increased coordinate accuracy.
The launch of MarvinSpace extends the Marvin platform toward molecular
modelling and high definition online publishing. Although at an early
development stage, MarvinSpace already provides unique functionalities and
high performance within a fast evolving public development. To try out
MarvinSpace please visit www.chemaxon.hu/shared/MarvinSpace/index.html
The range of Calculator Plugins, currently including logP, logD, pKa,
hydrogen bond donor/acceptor, polar surface area and partial charge is
extended with the inclusion of calculations like tautomer generation and
resonance forms. The topology analysis plugin is significantly improved to
include many properties useful for QSAR. To try out Marvin and the full range
of Calculator Plugins please visit www.chemaxon.com/demos/try_marvin.html
ChemAxon actively supports education and academic research by providing
free licenses for all of it's toolkits to teachers and academic researchers.
