Project description

Read Structure Step


A SEAMM plugin to read common formats found in computational chemistry. The current version uses OpenBabel as an engine to parse various formats such as PDB, Mol2 or XYZ and transform them into the SEAMM structure format for further use in SEAMM flowcharts.


  • Emphasis in ease-of-use and simplicity. The public interface consists of a single function.
  • Automatic file type recognition.
  • OpenBabel as an engine to parse formats, but other engines can be easily implemented.
  • Easily extensible to new formats.
  • Current support for PDB, Mol2 and XYZ files.
  • Free software: BSD-3-Clause
  • Documentation:


import read_structure_step
