Display and manipulate 3-D molecule structure
The Molecule Viewer app lets you display and manipulate 3-D molecular structures.
Import structural information directly from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) database or other supported files.
Measure distances and dihedral angles.
Display molecular surfaces, such as van der Waals or solvent-accessible surfaces.
Select different visualization and color schemes to display a molecule, such as the ribbon or backbone representation.
Run RasMol script commands from within the app.
MATLAB® Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Computational Biology, click the app icon.
MATLAB command prompt: Enter
Display the 3-D structure of an acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) molecule.
f = molviewer('aspirin.mol');
f.HandleVisibility = 'off';
molviewer opens the Molecule Viewer app.
the structural information from

the 3-D molecular structure in the Molecule Viewer app.
retrieves the structural data for a protein from the PDB database
pdbID and shows the 3-D molecular structure
in the Molecule Viewer app.
Not recommended starting in R2020b
The Molecule Viewer app will be removed in a future release.
