Kinemage Files

Kinemage Files for 3-D visualization of structures

Kinemage (sic) is a (protein) display and viewing language developed by David Richardson. It uses '.kin' files which are constructed using a scripting language that allows easy focusing on the 3-dimensional features of structures. These structures can be distinguished by color as well as associated labels that can be rotated by the observer using a mouse cursor. The '.kin' files can be distributed via WWW or FTP servers to accentuate a publication and/or be used in a teaching environment.

While developed and popularly used for viewing macromolecular structures, it may be used to display any data for which 3-dimensional coordinates are available. The latest Kinemage software for PC Windows, Macintosh or Unix X-Windows can be downloaded from the Official Kinemage Homepage.
