Interactive three-dimensional computer graphics in molecular biology
Interactive three-dimensional computer graphics was first used in 1964 to study biological macromolecules, particularly nucleic acids (3) and proteins (1). A good general description of this early work is given in (4). The hardware was the then unique Project MAC Electronic Systems Laboratory display at MIT. It was some time before comparable equipment became available elsewhere.
