Importers are dedicated to parsing files. An importer may be e.g. a PDB parser, an electron density parser, etc. SAMSON provides a set of importers by default to load structures and objects, and you can add more importers from SAMSON Connect.

If you want to start developing you own importers, please, refer to the documentation about the generating SAMSON extensions and the SAMSON tutorials page for more information about writing new importers for SAMSON.
