This is a great tool, easy to visualize protein structure, with and without ligands. It is useful for first year Biochemistry students, who may have trouble putting proteins in a 3D perspective without visual aids

Comment by Eric Martz (author of Protein Explorer): Since Protein Explorer was reviewed by MERLOT, a new version has been released that works in Internet Explorer 5.5 as well as in Netscape 4.x.
