Molscript General Description

Molscript was conceived by Per Kraulis, now at the Karolinska Institute. It can output ball-and-stick models, CPK structres, ribbon drawing, C-alpha traces with color, shading and depth cueing.

Molscript uses a command input file to define the atom coordinates and the graphical display. Output may be one of the following:
