Notes on Pharmacy related softwares for NIPER JEE preparation

 Useful softwares: May be asked as questions in NIPER JEE

Chem Office / Chem Draw ultra: It is used to draw the structures of drug molecules in 2D and then to convert them in 3D, to find the IUPAC name of the unknown compound, to find the structure of the drug from its IUPAC name, to give NMR spectrum (approx) of unknown drug.

Software used to visualize the protein/ peptide 3D structure: Pymol, Rasmol, Jmol, Molmol, and VMD.
