The CELLmicrocosmos 2 MembraneEditor is a 3D software which can be used to model molecular membranes based on the PDB format. These model membranes can be used to visualize biomolecular processes or to create base membranes as starting point for molecular dynamic simulations. Those simulations can be used to simulate membrane-protein or drug-membrane interactions. Rectangular membranes, membrane segments, single- or double-layer membranes, and also vesicles can be created by using this software.
It’s a Java-based software which can be run with professional 3D-stereoscopic displays as well:
