MOPIC (MOlecular PICtures) is a microcomputer implementation of molecular graphics software. It is designed for chemists and students, with no computer training, who need to manipulate and display molecules but do not require dedicated high performance systems. Moreover, since its graphics is patterned after vector display systems, MOPIC produces stick and dot sphere images of molecules which communicate a degree of visualization far superior to present microcomputer software.
