Additional options provided for viewing 3D molecular structures include variation in representations of:
- main chain (ribbon, strand, ribbon with cylinder, C alpha trace, or B factor tube)
- nucleic acid bases (lines, sticks, or polygons)
- non bonded atoms (solvent/ions) (stars or spheres)
- ligands (HETATMs) (spheres, sticks, lines, or icosahedrons)
- coloring (by spectrum, chain, secondary structure, B factor, or polar/nonpolar)
- toggling on/off (side chains as lines, unit cell, biological assembly (mainchain only), and crystal packing (mainchain only)
Suffice to say, this is a great use of WebGL by the scientific sphere and an all around impressive application.
