NuGet Badge

Package for processing of molecule related files.


Basic Usage

Create Molecules

Molecules can be created in a lot of ways. The easiest way is to use MoleculeFactory.Create, which accepts a string path. Depending on the File extension the correct DataProvider is used to load the file.

//Creates a molecule from cif file
const string path = "files/cif.cif";
var mol = MoleculeFactory.Create(path);

It is also possible to create a Molecule by using a specific DataProvider (e.g. if automatic detection fails or you only want to support a selected number of file types)

//You can also create molecules by selecting the provider yourself
const string path = "files/benzene.mol2";
var provider = new Mol2DataProvider(path);
var mol = new Molecule(provider);

You can also add Atoms and Bonds as Lists if you got the data from somewhere else.

//...or by just adding the Atoms & Bonds as Lists
const string path = "files/cif.cif";
var provider = new CIFDataProvider(path);
var mol = new Molecule(provider.Atoms, provider.Bonds);

Supported Files:

  • Import (XYZ, CIF (crystallographic information file, CCDC), MOL2 (TRIPOS Mol2), PDB (Protein Data Bank file), CDXML (Single Molecule only))
  • Export (XYZ, MOL2)
