The backbone of RNA consists of the alternating sugar and phosphate groups that make up an RNA molecule. In the image at right, the backbone is highlighted. The RNA backbone is often represented as a ribbon, while the atoms and bonds of the bases are drawn completely.

 

Stereo Projection

To view in 3D, look "behind" the image until both sides appear to overlap, then relax your eyes to focus.  If you are successful, you will see three copies of the image, with the one in the middle being the one that shows the depth effect.  Note that for this to work, the distance on the screen between the two images has to be less than the distance between your eyes.  If you can't get the middle images to merge, try using your browser to zoom out, making the images smaller and closer together.
