Coot 0.8.2 / WinCoot 0.8.2 – Macromolecular Model Building Tool

Coot 0.8.2 / WinCoot 0.8.2


Coot (Crystallographic Object-Oriented Toolkit) is for macromolecular model building, model completion and validation, particularly suitable for protein modelling using X-ray data. Coot displays maps and models and allows model manipulations such as idealization, real space refinement, manual rotation/translation, rigid-body fitting, ligand search, solvation, mutations, rotamers, Ramachandran plots, skeletonization, non-crystallographic symmetry and more.

WinCoot is a build of Coot (using MinGW and GTK) which runs native under Windows (without cygwin emulation)
