Dear All,

We are excited to announce the release of Graphite-MicroMégas that lets 
you model in 3D assemblies of proteins and DNA. Its main feature is the 
capability to create *3D models of DNA in a highly intuitive manner*.

Download this *free *software here

To date, the modeling and visualization tool enables to:
- import PDB files
- create isosurface of molecular object
- highlight residues of interest
- calculate distance between residues pairs
- import and export in 3D formats
- model DNA and export the result in PDB
- visualize a 3D scene with Level of Detail
- import a file with x,y,z coordinates and convert it into a DNA 
representation.

Graphite-MicroMégas is the result of a collaboration between the 
Fourmentin-Guilbert Scientific Foundation 
(http://www.fourmentinguilbert.org <http://www.fourmentinguilbert.org/>) 
and INRIA (Samuel Hornus, Bruno Levy<http://alice.loria.fr/>, 
http://alice.loria.fr/).

It runs on *Linux, Windows and Mac OSX*.
