Stores 3D structures of proteins and other molecules, with descriptive text and hyperlinks that change the adjacently displayed structures to coincide with points made in the text. Proteopedia is a wiki-based web-resource for all scientists who need to utilize three-dimensional (3D) structural information in their research, and for educators requiring a medium for compelling presentation of structure-function relationships. 3D scenes of molecules and molecular complexes can be created easily by Proteopedia users and immediately shared with and viewed by all.
