a: Building a 3-d protein model ~
b: looking at a piece of sculpture in a gallery
What: "Building a 3-D model is like looking at a piece of sculpture in a gallery. Only by walking around the piece and viewing its various sides and angles can the brain build a mental image of the art and fully comprehend its dimension, perspective, and scale. The same is true using a computer. Only by piecing together many different views of a molecule from a microscope can a computer build a model of the molecular assembly."
