The structures of proteins generated experimentally or computationally are in a .pdb files and to visualize these structures are the key need of new era. The visualization of the predicted models helps to visualize including loops, α helices, β pleated sheets and turns for the better understanding of the structure. Numerous tools are available for visualizing the structures and also to edit or performing different functions as per the need of experiment. Here, we will focus on the basic visualizing functions by utilizing Chimera.

Keywords: Balls and stick model, Chimera, Energy minimization, Model visualization.
