The project focuses on research methods for visualization of proteins. Using methods from computational geometry, the spatial relationships in protein structures are analyzed. 3D Voronoi diagrams are employed for the analysis of large proteins. The project also addresses new methods of visualization using virtual reality to reveal details about the analyzed protein. Another part of the project focuses on an interactive modification of protein structure in selected areas of tunnels through the exchange of residues and their rotamers (so called mutagenesis).
