Discovering new inhibitors and their effects on enzymes is a critical step
for developing new treatments for diseases such as Hepatitis C. We propose to
develop a number of algorithms to visualize metrics describing molecular
dynamics. These visualization allow for exploration of motions between
residues to help understand the nature of the motions occurring in the enzyme.
