// Molecular word modelling //


In online databases the letter sequence of the word is researched.

The protein Database (www.pdb.org) contains structural 3D data of molecules (proteins and nucleic acids) and is under free access to do scientific work.

Since 2008 each letter of the alphabet has its equivalent in the scientific based presentation of proteins.

PEPTOMICS developed a basic visualisation of each letter representing an amino acid so far.
