The links below are provided to give easy access to a variety of useful web resources in biochemistry. The bulleted descriptive quotes are taken from the specific web sites.
- "Protein Explorer, a RasMol-derivative, is the easiest-to-use and most powerful software for looking at macromolecular structure and its relation to function. And it's free! It runs on Windows or Macintosh/PPC computers. (linux users see below.) RasMol users will find its menus very familiar, and it understands RasMol commands. It is very fast: rotating a protein or DNA molecule shows its 3D structure. If you have never seen this, watch the image at the upper right of this page. (Click here to see another molecule rotate.) Look at our gallery to see still snapshots of other molecules. Also available here are Chime-based tutorials on"
- "The RCSB PDB provides a variety of tools and resources for studying the structures of biological macromolecules and their relationships to sequence, function, and disease."
- "This site offers tools for browsing, searching, and reporting that utilize the data resulting from ongoing efforts to create a more consistent and comprehensive archive."
- "The Jena Library of Biological Macromolecules (JenaLib) is aimed at a better dissemination of information on three-dimensional biopolymer structures with an emphasis on visualization and analysis."
- "It provides access to all structure entries deposited at the Protein Data Bank (PDB) or at the Nucleic Acid Database (NDB)."
- "In addition, basic information on the architecture of biopolymer structures is available."
- "The ExPASy (Expert Protein Analysis System) proteomics server of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) is dedicated to the analysis of protein sequences and structures as well as 2-D PAGE."
- "Established in 1988 as a national resource for molecular biology information, NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information - all for the better understanding of molecular processes affecting human health and disease."
- "The NIST Chemistry WebBook provides access to data compiled and distributed by NIST under the Standard Reference Data Program."
