{{start}} The LIGPLOT software program automatically generates schematic 2-D representations of protein-ligand complexes from standard Protein Data Bank file input. The output is a colour or black-and-white PostScript file giving simple and informative representation of the intermolecular interactions, including hydrogen bonds and hydophyobic interactions. A java-based editor called LigEd allows the final plot to be interactively modified and fine-tuned if necessary. {{end}}
