New iPhone apps and Protein Drug Database

Abl geneImage via Wikipedia One of coolest apps I've come across in the iTunes store is Molecules.

It allows you to select different drugs or molecules from the database and see them in 3 dimensions on the screen. You can even zoom in and see close up detail.

For example, the crystal structure of the C-Abl kinase domain in complex with STI-571 (Gleevec) for Philadelphia-positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) is a beautiful sight.

You can also see more details behind the structure, such as the reference, authors, number of atoms, PDB code, sequence etc.

A very useful tool on the iPhone.
