Molecular modeling is a general term that covers a wide range of molecular graphics and computational chemistry techniques that are used to build, display, manipulate, simulate, and calculate molecular properties. InsightII is a graphic user interface that acts as a front-end to many of these molecular modeling tools. This tutorial covers the basic biomolecular building and visualization features within InsightII, in addition to demonstrating its interface to some of its molecular modeling modules.

Prerequisites: Basic Chemical and Biological Structure Concepts
