Computer graphics has evolved into the principal modeling tool in biomolecular structural studies. It is used extensively in molecular modeling building, evaluation, and presentation. Hardware and software now exist that enable these activities over a wide range of cost and performance, from personal computers to supercomputer class devices. This paper will review the current application of computer graphics to biomolecular modeling, focusing on the special requirements of each of the principal
