SeeSAR: what's new?

2018-09-12

version 8.1

This new version covers a number of enhancements (small and big) in various areas of the application:

  • improved screen shot options
    SeeSAR-users regularly come up with phenomenal results, however, when it comes to publishing, the tool had it's limitations. Particularly large-scale, high-resolution graphics required a high-resolution display at your desktop. Now – independent of your graphics hardware – you may determine the size and resolution for your screen shot. Give it a try and let us see all those wonderful graphics on your posters, your presentations and in your publications to come.
  • clash-detection and visualization
    The Lennard-Jones potential shows the very steep curve as two atoms come close, indicating that the smallest deviation from the ideal distance is already heavily penalized. A severe clash is the one force that may easily kill all affinity. Therefore we now report clashes on two levels:
    1. in the molecules table as two new columns with a traffic light indicating no (green), moderate (yellow) and severe (red) clashes separately for intra- and inter-molecular clashes. Note that these properties can be used for filtering as well.
    2. in 3D the visualization of clashes may be switched on with a new function under the visualization settings (top right). When turned on, any moderate to severe clash is indicated with arrows between the atoms involved. Note that this visualization is "live" as you edit molecules.
  • user colors for reference compounds
    Way back, with version 5.5, we introduced the option to select and show multiple molecules (as so-called reference compounds), such that they are kept in place as you browse through your molecules table. Now many users said that it would be nice – for better distinction – if they all had different colors. Your wish is our command and rather than dictating any color, we put you in charge. So now, as you select a molecule to become reference, a colored field appears in the table. You may click on it and select any color you wish for this particular reference.
  • spotting differences in multiple proteins
    When multiple proteins are loaded, the binding site in 3D usually becomes quite busy. With version 8.0 we bundled all visualization controls in the sequence view. A mouse-over shows you quickly where any residue, molecule, water or chain is located and then you can simply toggle show and hide of the object. In this version we facilitate hiding at once all components that are close to the protein, which was used to define the binding site. This way – with one click – only the significant differences between multiple proteins stay in view, which removes a lot of redundancy and the scene appears much less busy.
