VMD Tutorial


VMD is an excellent structure viewer (and much more) that is both powerful and relatively easy to use. This page is a beginner's VMD tutorial and will cover pretty much everything you will need for common structure viewing as well as some extra features that are quite useful. The links on the left can be used to take you to the various sections of this tutorial.

This tutorial assumes that you have a recent version of VMD installed for your platform. You can download VMD from the VMD web site. Downloading VMD is free but you will have to give them an email that they will use to send you a username and password. Don't worry, they won't spam you.
