Our two workhorse applications for scientific visualizations are the open-source applications ParaView and VisIt. They are provided with server-side python-driven batch operation, or with client-server interactive modes.
Additionally, users with molecular science codes such as CP2K, Quantum Espresso, LAMMPS, GROMACS, VASP, NAMD, NWChem, Amber, can take advantage of an optimized installation of VMD on daint. VMD is a highly successful application for modeling, visualization, and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. See more details here:
