Abstract A FORTRAN program was developed to generate the three-dimensional vector graphics of protein molecules. The program used DISSPLA subroutines (Computer Associates International Inc.) to interface the computer system for graphic display. Two data formats supported by the program were the X-ray crystallographic protein data and the structure data from the program PROADS. A protein molecule was interactively rotated or enlarged for display. The program provides a simple solution to the need of pr... Title of program: PROPLT Catalogue Id: ABTB_v1_0 Nature of problem Three-dimensional structure of a protein is displayed by a vector graphic algorithm. A protein molecule can be interactively rotated to show a three-dimensional image in any orientation. The protein molecule can also be enlarged allowing user to focus on a specific part of the molecule. Two data formats are supported by the program. They are the X-ray crystallographic protein structure coordinates from Brookhaven Protein Data Bank in New York, U.S.A., and the protein structure data format of the ...
