Protein structure sites:

protein data base is a primary store of experimentally determined atomic coordinates of proteins. Each coordinate has a unique identification code that can be retrieved together with the coordinates and other info about the structure, including interacive images, by searching for the protein's name or publication details).

protein science kinemages is interactive molecular images produced by program Mage. Many on-line journals use the kinemage format to display protein structures.

rasmol and chime are interactive molecular images from molecule's atomic coordinates

protein structure classification arranges domains according to class, architecture and topology plus there is a useful glossary (from University College London).

Protein topology homepage provides a program that searches for specific topologies and can determine the topology of a new, unique protein
