Dear Martin,
Sorry, we do not have a VPAT for UCSF Chimera or any other programs from our group.  We do welcome your interest and hope that this will not disqualify Chimera from being used in your class.  Chimera has been used in many courses.  Most use is apparently at the college level, including undergraduate, but we’ve also heard from high school teachers before.

P.S. here’s a recent publication from others (not our own group) about using Chimera in education:

Using molecular visualization to explore protein structure and function and enhance student facility with computational tools.

The IT Department would like the VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) so that I can submit it for approval.  If you have it available could you please send it to me.  I appreciate your time and look forward to teaching with your product.
