"Biology is a way of structuring matter at a moleular scale by slotting each atom into its needful place"
- Oliver Morton, The Economist, April 6th, 2019

  • The OMM's exhibits are divided into functional "halls".
  • Please note: Each exhibit will open in a new window - it is recommended that you close one exhibit before opening the next. Most atomic coordinate (*.pdb) files have been gnu-zipped to speed downloads, but some files are still large.
  • For JSmol (and many other great Jmol enhancements), THANK YOU Bob Hanson!
  • We recommend the use of Firefox
