There is a new MAC visualization and analysis package called Protein 
Expert that is currently being ported to Power MAC.

e-mail me for more information.  I am the distributor.

: I have almost the exact same question, and a flyer on a new product.
: Has anyone gotten anything from the Molecular Applications Group?
: They list packages called Look (proteins), SegMod (homology), and
: MacImdad.  The MacImdad product looks interesting.  It claims to have
: a compressed PDB database that can be searched to pull up structures.
: It is also available on PowerPC and other Mac systems.  They offer a
: free demo disk that I have asked for.  The ad reads "Display - Analyze
: - Print" so I guess it is in the RasMol field of applications.  I
: would like to hear how this product compares to anything else on the
: market.
