Starting at version v3, Biomodel3 uses Jmol to show and manipulate the molecular models. Jmol* is a Java applet, enjoying better compatibility with modern browsers and operating systems.
Biomodel3 versions before v3 used Chime** and came in part from a previous version for University students (Biomodel1),
which was created originally in collaboration with José Ramón López (lecturer in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Valladolid, in Spain) and later expanded, enhanced and also ported into Jmol.
The chosen format is derived from the web page template for Chime offered by Professor Eric Martz, from the University of Massachussetts, U.S.A.
(MolviZ.org), to whom we are deeply indebted, since it made tremendously easy to prepare these pages on their first version. Thank you, Eric!

(*) Jmol is free, open source software. It does not need to be installed in the computer for using it, but you must have installed a recent version of Java (Java Virtual Machine). JSmol is part of the Jmol project and runs without the need for Java.
Thanks to the Jmol developers team, who offer their work hours for free so that all of us can enjoy good quality molecular models.

Thanks to MDL for offering Chime for free to the internet community; it's a pity that they decided to leave it to its fate.
