Sorry, but just too cool not to steal:

Ribosome Builder

Significant additions include a schematic simulation of translation elongation. This is a 3D animated simulation of one complete cycle of elongation on the ribosome, using structural models at atomic resolution. The simulation can be run by choosing the menu item from the Script->Other->Demos->Schematic Simulations menu. The simulation incorporates text, graphics, changing viewpoints, geometrical interpolation of rigid-body structural models and recorded movies of molecular dynamics trajectories. This type of simulation is expected to becoming increasingly useful in the future to investigate and communicate models of complex macromolecular systems.

For some reason I wanted to spell "ribosome" with an "h". Like "abhominable".
