Thanks Tristan! Unfortunately, the students tell me that the 1 GB size of
ChimeraX is about what their laptops can handle, so I'm reluctant to
require them to install another program to do a small part of a larger
exercise. Hopefully ChimeraX will have a Ramachandran plot at some point
in the future, but I'll have other things for the students to do this year.
