Molecular modelling. Researchers studying a computer molecular model of a protein in connection with drug manufacturing. The purple 'ribbon' on the screen is the general structure of the protein. One part of the molecule has been rendered with its atomic pattern; this is the active site of the molecule. The protein being studied is a G-protein, involved in the response of cells to hormones and neuro-transmitters.
