Abstract

Software has been developed on a microcomputer to provide a low-level but useful graphics system. The programs have been written to aid in the fitting of electron density maps, provide various representations of protein models and allow the comparison of protein structures. The work demonstrates that an 8-bit microcomputer has sufficient power to perform quite complex calculations and provide an interactive tool for probing protein structure; and even very low resolution graphics (300 × 150 pixels) is sufficient, with colour, to give a good representation of a model containing as many as 830 atoms.
