|The linked pages described here have tutorials and quizzes that are based on Chime and RasMol images of the molecules and macromolecules found in biochemistry. They are intended to complement standard biochemistry texts where more explanation is provided, but where interactive 3-D images of the molecules are not available. |
Please see viewing suggestions below before choosing a topic.

Please note the following for
Get the Chime plug-in from the MDL Inc. software download page. It is now available for the Mac,
Windows, and SGI IRIX computers. After installing this plug-in, try out the moving images at the MDL Inc. site.
Their Cool Examples page lists many other sites where the Chime plug-in is being used to display molecules.
RasMol v2.6 by Roger Sayle.
The RasMol Home Page maintained by Dr. Eric Martz, provides RasMol in versions for several operating systems, with installation instructions, and extensive supplementary resources. Included are Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), tutorials on how to use RasMol, and several documents on how to create "movie" scripts.
This site also has several different kinds of Chime-based tutorials and detailed instructions for creating Chime images on WWW pages. See the Chime Resources page for these offerings.
The RasMol Manual (144K) has been updated to v2.6 and converted to HTML format. It can be read (or downloaded) at the above site.
The RasMol Manual: Frames added some new features to the v2.6 HTML Manual and permits faster navigation between topics.
The CMU RasMol Tutorial is an on-line version of the tutorial written by Dr. David Hackney for use in our biochemistry courses.
Are you an experienced RasMol user?
The interactive RasMol Quiz will test your mastery of RasMol commands.
You should also look at the CMU Chime Features page, for a short demonstration on how this plug-in is used with the molecular models shown here.
Unless otherwise noted, the small molecule atomic coordinates are from Klotho: Biochemical Compounds Declarative Database.
Adjust your Netscape window to a width of about 9-10 inches (640-700).
Interactive Displays of Molecular Structures on WWW Pages outlines some of our goals and plans for this site. It was the basis for a CMU TELFair presentation on October 2, 1998.
