[mə′lek·yə·lər ′graf·iks]
(physical chemistry)
The use of computer graphics to display and manipulate chemical structures with sufficient accuracy that bond distances and angles may be displayed and reported and it is possible to dock or fit together two or more molecules. Also known as graphics-based molecular modeling.
