Introduction

Spock is a high-end molecular graphics package for displaying protein and nucleic acid structures. Spock also is a powerful search engine allowing users to search through a directory of PDB files for proteins which have specific characteristics. Spock provides the typical molecular visualization views (ribbons of several types, line and rod bonds, etc.) as well as molecular and accessible surfacing routines. Spock also provides interfaces to DSSP for reading in secondary structure information and a near-WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface for Molscript for producing publication-quality printouts. Of course, the graphics images in spock can be saved in several formats for presentation graphics as well.
