NMRView is a program by Bruce A. Johnson of Merck Research Laboratories for the visualization and analysis of NMR datasets. The following summarizes some of the features of NMRView. Multiple views on one or more NMR spectra. Unlimited number of spectral windows. Windows may be in any size or position on the screen. Unlimited number of data files. Generic reader for block structured files. Corresponding cursors in different windows track each other automatically. Contour plots of any plane of any 2, 3, or 4 dimensional spectra. 1D vector plots in any orientation of 1 to 4 dimensional spectra. Spectral displays may be transferred from one window to another using a Copy/Paste protocol. Automatic peak picking. Peak searching. Facilitated peak analysis and interactive peak editing. Spin-system tabulation XY data plotting and non-linear regression analysis. Powerful command language (Tcl, tool command language). Programmable user interface. Flexible database. Comprehensive NOE constraint generation and analysis. Structure analysis including rmsd superpositions and constraint violation analysis. Contextual help. On-line hyper-text documentation using Web browsers such as Mosaic or Netscape.

module load nmrview

Important note for Windows NX users

 If you connect remotely to MSI using NX from a Windows client, you will need to downoad and install the additional font packages from NoMachine. Install the latest NX 3.x client for Windows, and all four nxfont packages. Without these font packages, nmrDraw will fail with "XView error: Cannot open connection to window server".
