Required Plug-ins, Players and Readers

We provide information on our Web site in a variety of file formats. Most of these file formats are easily read and displayed by standard Web browsers or word processing programs, but some files, such as multimedia or very precisely defined documents, may require the use of additional software. Users can download and install on their computers free, add-on programs called plug-ins, readers or players that will enable their browsers to display or play the content of these files. Below are links to the download pages for the plug-ins the NIGMS Web site uses. These pages are at the official Web sites of the companies that produce the software.
