Hannon, G. J., Jentoft, J. E. (1985) MOLECULAR DESIGNER: An interactive program for the display of protein structure on the IBM-PC. Computer Applications in the Biosciences, 1 (3). pp. 177-181. ISSN 02667061 (ISSN)



A BASIC interactive graphics program has been developed for the IBM-PC which utilizes the graphics capabilities of that computer to display and manipulate protein structure from coordinates. Structures may be generated from typed files, or from Brookhaven National Laboratories' Protein Data Bank data tapes. Once displayed, images may be rotated, translated and expanded to any desired size. Figures may be viewed as ball-and-stick or space-filling models. Calculated multiple-point perspective may also be added to the display. Docking manipulations are possible since more than a single figure may be displayed and manipulated simultaneously. Further, stereo images and red/blue three-dimensional images may be generated using the accompanying DESIPLOT program and an HP-7475A plotter. A version of the program is also currently availabe for the Apple Macintosh. Full implementation on the Macintosh requires 512 K and at least one disk drive.
