Formats supported by SAMSON

Formats supported by SAMSON

SAMSON supports a number of formats for importing and exporting various data (molecular systems, meshes, etc).

SAMSON has its own formats (SAM, SAMX) that support an extensive variety of types of data that can be opened, created, and saved by SAMSON, among them are molecular structures, groups, visual models, meshes, animations, notes, simulators (interaction models and state updaters), etc.

Below you will find a non-comprehensive list of formats supported in SAMSON for importing and exporting various types of data. Most of these formats are available with SAMSON right away, but for some, it is necessary to add an extension (click on the extension link). Please note that SAMSON extensions might support additional formats that are not listed here.

If you did not find the format below and you would like us to add it in SAMSON please contact us via the Forum.
