Graphics

Graphics
We offer examples from each program to help you choose the program best suited to your needs. Specifically, we consider two types of figures typically appearing in crystallographic articles; (1) panoramic view (tertiary/quaternary structure) and (2) close up views (active sites, interfaces, etc.) and
     1) Ribbons
     2) Setor
     3) O with Molray
     4) Rasmol with Raster3D
     5) WebLab viewer
     6) Ligplot
