Cn3D (See in Three-Dee) is a new structure viewer that is based on the Entrez data model. It is a client-server application - meaning you can immediately fetch structures you wish to see over the Internet in a single session. You can also save the structures you have found from Cn3D. Cn3D reads in ASN.1 formatted structures which originate from MMDB, the Molecular Modeling Database at NCBI. The new ASN.1 file format for 3D structure data is more compact than the PDB file format, resulting in faster transmission over the internet.
