Molecular Flipbook Toolkit Features (Beta Version)
Upload molecular structures as PDB files, either from your computer or from the Protein Data Bank database.
Create a “blobby” as a stand-in for proteins that you don’t have a structure file for. All you need to know is a molecular weight or approximate dimensions to create a blobby!
Animate colors and shaders
It’s easy to animate your molecules changing color (to signify activation, for example) and to change its look using the Shader tool.
The in-application tutorials launch automatically and will walk you through how to use Flipbook.
Save your animation as a video
Once you create your animation, you can export it as a movie file that you can then embed in presentations and share with others!
If you’ve ever used Powerpoint or Keynote, you’ll already be an expert in creating animations in Molecular Flipbook.
Create protein markers
Create and animate protein markers that can indicate, for example, where post-translational modifications are made.

Create a dynamic and flexible linker that connects two domains of a protein.
Create two different surfaces from a single chain – this can be useful to animate domains separately, for example.
Create biological units
Create larger biological assemblies (of virus capsids, for instance) using the BIOMT coordinates inside a PDB.
Import additional filetypes
Import geometry files, such as reconstructions from the EMDB, or other files (such as .stl) that may have been generated in another program.
