[Chimera-users] colouring according to hydrophobicity

Hi,

     I am wondering whether there is any (easy) way of colouring a 
volume (e.g. an MRC file made from a pdb file and filtered to say, 10 A 
with e.g. xmipp)  according to hydrophobicity (using the values derived 
from the amino acid residues in the pdb file)? I am aware of the way to 
colour the van der Waals surface but the resolution is somewhat too high 
not allowing to get a more general view, for example whether the 
molecule is more hydrophobic on one side than on another side. The same 
question applies to the charge distribution....

Thanks, Dieter
