PROJECT:PDB viewer. Design a program that parses a PDB file (from the PDB database), and draws a simple picture of the protein using small disks to represent atoms and joining consecutive atoms by lines. Color atoms contained in alpha-helices red, and atoms contained in beta-sheet blue, an other black. Run the viewer on 2BOP, 1RNB, 1CD8 and other two proteins that you may find interesting (courtesy of Daniel Huson).
