[Chimera-users] Surface electrostatic and hydrophobicity.

Hi elaine,

I've a few questions to ask about colouring surface by electrostatic potential and hydrophobicity:

1. I understand that I can use render by attribute to show surface hydrophobicity. But because it's a residue attribute, any surface of the same residue will be getting the same colour. Is there a way to calculate the surface hydrophobicity based on atoms in the vicinity instead of simply using the residue hydrophobicity values?

2. Because I have problem installing delphi, I have resorted to using the coulomb surface colouring tool. How different is this from the procedure of adding hydrogen, adding charge, then render by attribute ? Will I expect to see the same result ?

Thanks elaine!
