ChExVis: a tool for molecular channel extraction and visualization

A channel is a pathway through empty space within the molecule. Understanding channels, that lead to active sites or traverse the molecule, is important in the study of molecular functions such as ion, ligand, and small molecule transport.

Efficient methods for extracting, storing, and analysing protein channels are required to support such studies. We develop an integrated framework called ChExVis that supports computation of the channels, interactive exploration of their structure, and detailed visual analysis of their properties
