Hi Amitoj,
	If R can run external system commands then this is possible.  Use  
bio3d to write a PDB file and then use R to start Chimera from the  
command line with the PDB file name as an argument, as documented here:


	If you don't know how to run external commands from R, you would  
probably have to ask about that on the R mailing list.
