try the program "molmol". if you have got a file which contains data
about the 3d- structure of a protein (e.g. *.pdb) you can display the
data three- dimensional. the program provides the possibilities to
rotate the molecule, render ribbons, render backbones without
sidechains and many more.
download it for free (linux/many win- systems) at:


an alternative to the quite big software package "molmol" could be
"rasmol". this program does quite the same but it only has more basic
