View, Analyse, and Explore Macromolecular Structures and Their Properties
Visualize proteins, DNA, and other macromolecules with or without bound ligands shown (e.g. docking poses or observed ligands) and generate high-definition images or animations. Analyse systems further with CSD-Discovery, to perform docking, generate conformers, overlay ligands, and more.
Comprehensive, interactive visualization
Show your work with clear, visual presentation. Choose from standard styles or create your own, customize the display and annotations to show what matters to you. Generate high-resolution images and animations of macromolecules.
Customize and display specific feature
Fully custom visualization. Show ribbons, sheets, ligands, metals, waters, and more to highlight and communicate your findings.
Access advanced analysis tools
Track changes to know when repository script edits were made and specifically what they were. Track back to how the data was generated — see the exact settings used in each analysis.
Get started easily
Complete your analysis in Hermes, with CSD-Discovery access advanced tools to perform docking, analyse interactions, generate conformers, overlay ligands and more. Hermes is the desktop interface method to access GOLD, our validated and trusted protein-ligand docking algorithm.
Overlay molecular structures
Perform structural superimposition of multiple conformations of the same protein or other macromolecules, access the root-mean-square (RMS) to deeply understand similarities and differences between the structures.
Explore published or proprietary structures
Apply all these features to published or new structures — Hermes can open many common file formats including .mol2 .mol .pdb and .sdf.
How to Navigate through Hermes
