How to download PDB Protein Data with the $3Dmol.download() method?

✍: FYIcenter.com


The syntax to download PDB Protein Data with the $3Dmol.download() method is shown below:

$3Dmol.download("pdb:{PDB_ID}", viewer, options, callback) -> {$3Dmol.GLModel}
  viewer - The $3Dmol.GLViewer instance where the downloaded protein is added
  options - Options applied to the downloaded data 
  callback - Function to call after data is loaded with model as argument

Here is an HTML code example, Download-PDB.html, that uses the download() method to download a protein with a given PDB ID.

<script src="/3Dmol-min.js"></script>
<div id="viewer" style="width: 400px; height: 400px; position: relative;"></div>
  let config = { backgroundColor:'grey' };
  let viewer = $3Dmol.createViewer( $('#viewer'), config );
  $3Dmol.download("pdb:1MO8", viewer, {}, function(m) {
    m.setStyle({"chain":"A"}, {cartoon:{color:"spectrum"}});

This example HTML code will display a PDB protein in cartoon style:
