  1.   Why do we care about 3D macromolecular structure?
  2.   What are 3D structure data?
  3.   Where do 3D structure data come from?
  4.   How much 3D structure knowledge do we have?
  5.   Primary and Derived 3D Structure Databases

3D Molecular visualization resources are available from MolviZ.Org.
These slides were prepared to introduce a graduate-level bioinformatics class to structural bioinformatics in a single lecture. They are also used in workshops (see Workshops.MolviZ.Org).
