CCP4mg is a molecular-graphics program that is designed to give rapid access to both straightforward and complex static and dynamic representations of macromolecular structures. It has recently been updated with a new interface that provides more sophisticated atom-selection options and a wizard to facilitate the generation of complex scenes. These scenes may contain a mixture of coordinate-derived and abstract graphical objects, including text objects, arbitrary vectors, geometric objects and imported images, which can enhance a picture and eliminate the need for subsequent editing.
Version 2.9.0 of CCP4MG introduces a new "Simple Display Table" which allows for much more efficient viewing of the binding sites of large numbers of homologous proteins.
Recently work has begun on a WebGL (in-browser 3D graphics) version of the program. This will allow all the features of the CCP4MG program to be used within a web browser without the need to install the software locally.
I am also assisting with the development of the CCP4i2 project (new graphical interface for the CCP4 suite of crystallographic programs): My involvement is library integration, graphical widget development.
