Molecular Modeling with RASMOL


On this page are *.ent text files obtained from the Molecules R US facility of NIH and the Brookhaven Protein Database or constructed with the SPARTAN molecular modeling program. The files contain the atomic coordinates of the specified molecule and can be viewed with the RasMol molecular viewing program. Some *.pdb files have embedded RasMol script commands to set the view. To view these molecules you should obtain the RasMol program from the site listed below, and then configure your web browser as follows:
