"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing"
The technology that enabled the development of the original version of this site was based to a large extent on the Symmetry Tutorial developed by Prof. Dean H. Johnston of Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio. This site could not have been established without Prof. Johnston's assistance and we greatly appreciate his help and sincerely thank him for it.
We would also like to thank Prof. Eric Martz of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, who developed the World Index of Molecular Visualization Resources - a key site for molecular visualization databases. From this site, as well as from discussions with Prof. Martz, we learned a great deal about molecular display methods on the Web and about the use of the Chime plugin.
Finally, we would like to thank Prof. Bob Hanson of St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN, for numerous suggestions on converting the site to Jmol.
We will be glad to receive feedback, comments and insights. Please send your comments by e-mail to Dr. Inbal Tuvi-Arad, the Department of Natural Sciences, The Open University of Israel.
