This paper builds on the combination of robotic path planning algorithms and molecular modeling methods for computing large-amplitude molecular motions, and introduces voxel maps as a computational tool to encode and to represent such motions. We investigate several applications and show results that illustrate the interest of such representation.
Simulation, modeling, visualization, computer applications to biology, robotics.
