We describe the Object Technology Framework (OTF) software system developed at the University of California, San Francisco Computer Graphics Laboratory for creating C+2 classes that facilitate rapid biomolecular application development and the application of the OTF to collagen modeling. C+2 class libraries for accessing and manipulating data from standard scientific data sources can be generated using the program genlib and its class library toolkit Molecule, thereby facilitating development of new applications. Use of the OTF for generating ideal collagen structural models (gencollagen) is described. The source code for the OTF is freely available at http:/(/) to interested application developers.
