The following software and code was used in the construction of this web site.
DINO: Visualizing Structural Biology (1999) – This molecular graphics program was used to generate 3D models of the LH2 and RC complexes for the image galleries, which were then rendered to 2D images using POV-ray
The Javascript code used in the Chime controls is modified from that provided by Eric Martz in his Chime tutorials.
