AstexViewer is a Java molecular graphics program that can be used for visualisation in many aspects of structure-based drug design. This paper describes its functionality, implementation and examples of its use. The program can run as an Applet in a web browser allowing structures to be displayed without installing additional software. Applications of its use are described for visualisation and as part of a structure based design platform. The software is being made freely available to the community and may be downloaded from
