This unit describes the use of RasMol, a popular interactive molecular graphics program, for the display of biomolecular structures. The unit begins with a general guide to obtaining molecular coordinates from the Protein Data Bank and displaying them with RasMol, and then describes several molecular representations that are useful for different applications, along with methods for ensuring that one is viewing the appropriate biological unit and some ideas for customizing one's molecular graphics session.
