The same sperm whale molecule shown in the model in digital format in the Stereographic Visualization Laboratory. With digital technology, this model, and thousands of others, can be accessed in a matter of seconds and is more accurate than a mechanical model. Also, with the new technology it is possible for researchers to jump instantly from a wire-frame model to a space-filled representation or to show different portions of the model in different modes. Manipulation of the image allows researchers to go "into" the virtual image of the molecule to look for holes and active sites.
