Short, non-technical introduction to RasMol

RasMol is a free program which displays molecular structure. It is available for on PC/Windows (RasWin), MacIntosh (RasMac), unix, and VAX VMS (the latter two via X-windows), and also (through ports by users) for NEXTSTEP and for Acorn Archimedes RISC OS. RasMol is a powerful educational tool for showing the structure of DNA, proteins and smaller molecules. It is also a powerful research tool. It is easy to use and produces beautiful, space-filling, colored, 3-dimensional images (see the Gallery!). It is the generous gift to the scientific public of its author, Roger A. Sayle, Ph.D., GlaxoWellcome, and the University of Edinburgh (all in the United Kingdom).
