Issue No.04 - July (1996 vol.16)
pp: 58-61
ABSTRACT
We compute and visualize four geometric protein models: the space filling diagram, the solvent accessible surface, the molecular surface, and the alpha complex. Relations between the models are illustrated via continuous deformations. A supercomputer does the computations at a remote site and sends the results through I-WAY to the Cave Automatic Virtual Environment for visualization.
INDEX TERMS
Geometric modeling, virtual reality, CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment).
