MolScript is a program for creating schematic or detailed molecular graphics images from molecular 3D coordinates, usually, but not exclusively, protein structures. The user supplies an input file (the script) which specifies the coordinate file, what objects to render and the exact appearance of the objects through the graphics state parameters. There is a helper program MolAuto, which produces a useful first-approximation input file from a PDB coordinate file.
