Visualization has been a key technology in the progress of structural molecular biology for as long as the field has existed. This perspective describes the nature of the visualization process in structural studies, how it has evolved over the years, and its relationship to the changes in technology that have supported and driven it. It focuses on how technical advances have changed the way we look at and interact with molecular structure, and how structural biology has fostered and challenged that technology.
Keywords: molecular graphics; molecular modeling; structural molecular biology; visualization.
