Required Plugins:

In order to view these interactive demonstrations, you will need the Aobe Flash and Shockwave Player Plugins and the MDL Chime Plugin (for viewing 3D molecular structures). Both plugins are free and may need to be installed on your machine.


FlashTest:



Most of these animations Use Flash.

If you do not see the phage animation to the left, you should download the latest version of Adobe Flash and Shockwave Players for your operating system at the following URLs:

Chime Test:


The DNA Structure and DNA Base Pair 3D demonstrations are the only examples on this site that use Chime, a 3D molecular modeling plugin.

If you do not see the rotating molecule to the left, you should download the latest version of Chime from the following URL: http://www.mdli.com/downloads/downloadable/index.jsp (you must register with MDLI) or see below. Pay close attention to software requirements, because the plugin is not compatible with all browsers and operating systems.
