Mimics is useful for visualization and segmentation of CT / MR images and 3D rendering of objects. It also provides an interface to create FEM meshes. MSI currently has the following modules Mimics basic - Allows segmentation, registration and measurement on 3D object STL+ - Allows creation of 3D object for rapid prototyping FEM - Add material property, create FEM mesh and export files to standard FEM packages
PyMOL is a Python-enhanced molecular graphics program. It excels at 3D visualization of proteins, small molecules, density, surfaces, and trajectories. It also includes molecular editing, ray tracing, and movies. It also has a number of third party plugins available. Currently installed third party plugins at MSI are: Caver v2, Mole, and EMovie.
Python is a high level programming language that aims to combine remarkable power with very clear syntax. Its success in these areas has led to strong adoption by the scientific community, resulting in numerous math, physics, chemistry, and biology libraries being contributed from the community of users.
