Are you talking about "small" organic molecules (not proteins)? If so,
use ChemSketch, from ACD Labs, which let's you draw a structure, and
convert it to the 3D. Don't need WebLab Viewer anymore.
Many many small molecules are available as pdb files. the Okanagan
collection is one excellent source, and probably includes much of what
you want for biol.
I have introductory pages for RasMol and ChemSketch (as well as Isis),
for my students. Suggest you start with the RasMol page, especially
the section on making your own structure files. The RasMol page also
contains the Okanagan address.
