Another PYMOL session file

A full-length model of glycosylated SARS-Cov-2 spike protein is recently described in literature by Casalino et. al. The PDB files for models are available at These PDB files contain data for spike protein, glycans, lipid membrane, ions, and solvent.

Manish Sud has generated an annotated PyMol session file to view the model of spike protein present in open state conformation. The PyMOL session file is quite helpful during the reading of the article describing the work. It's a bit of elbow grease work to set up appropriate views in PyMOL and Manish has kindly shared it. It's available for download at I'm sure many will find it helpful.


The size of uncompressed PyMOL session file is quite large. It might take few minutes to load it into PyMOL, based on your hardware specifications.

Manish has also provided session files for SARS-CoV-2 Mpro ligands.
