Scenes for Projection in Biochemistry Classes
Here are some large scenes of a nucleosome (1aoi) suitable for projection in biochemistry classes. ENLARGE the font making it easy for people in the audience to read the text: Firefox: Ctrl and roll mouse wheel; Safari, Shift-Command-Plus; Internet Explorer: View, Text Size. If you copy this into another page you can easily enlarge or reduce the size of the molecule by editing the size parameter in the applet tag.
