A GTK+ based program for the display and manipulation of isolated molecules, periodic systems and crystalline habits. It is in development, but is nonetheless fairly functional. It has the following features:

 * Support for several file types (CIF, BIOSYM, XYZ,
 * A simple molecular creation and manipulation tool
 * A dialogue for creating starting configurations for
   molecular dynamics simulations
 * Assorted tools for visualization (geometry information,
   region highlighting, etc.)
 * Animation of BIOSYM files (also rendered animations,
   see below)

GDIS also allows you to perform the following functions through other packages:
