Molecular Modeling software:

I use ChemWindows available from Bio-Rad.  It comes with a simple, quick
3-D modeling program (SymApps) for small molecules to medium-sized (ie,
proteins, DNA, etc.).  Their web site is

but it is very difficult to find just how to order it.  This is what I
posted on my course web site for my students:

This company was bought by Bio-Rad and Bio-Rad has an incredibly LAME Web
site but if you can actually find where to buy this software, it is worth
it. This is the program that I use. Powerful set of programs allowing
standard, wireframe, stick, stick-and-ball, space-filling and animated
molecular modeling. Handouts in class and molecular models on this web
are constructed with ChemWindow Suite 5.1, they are up to 6.0 now.
