[Chimera-users] hydrophopic interaction

Hi All,

I have a amphipathic helix/membrane complex assembled with CHARMN-GUI and I'll like to show those residues that come into contact with the lipid bilayer. Using find clash/contact function, I can see many lines joining the atoms of both the residues and lipid bilayer. However,  I don't really know how to pick the true hydrophopic interaction from the rest of the clashes/contacts. In addition, is there a way to quatify which these interactions may be tighter than the other. 

Any suggestion is appreciated.
