I have received several requests to post the ways of obtaining
ribbon drawing programs, so here is the info I have:
Ref: J. Appl. Cryst. (1991) 24, 946-950.
Can be obtained from the author Dr. Per J. Kraulis at
Dept. of Biochemistry
University of Cambridge
Tennis Court Road
Cambridge CB2 1 QW
Ref: J. Mol. Graphics 6, 13-27 (1988).
This was developed by the Computer Graphics Laboratory
at UCSF, and is available from them at:
Computer Graphics Laboratory
School of Pharmacy
University of California, San Francisco
a commercial package available from
BIOSYM Technologies, Inc.
Eastern Regional Office
4 Century Drive
