Hi there,
I am looking for a program (Mac ??) that allows to determine the packing 
of (phospho)lipid molecules in a membrane. In particular, I would like 
to get an idea of how fatty acid chain length may affect the packing of 
lipids, interdigitation of the two membrane leaflets or membrane 
curvature. I have heard about the programs "nanovision" and "bilayer 
builder", but was not able to find out where to get them. Any 
suggestions ?
Many thanks in advance,

Sepp D. Kohlwein
