Visualization of dynamic channels in biomolecular systems

 This visualization represents a static view of a dynamic process. This skin surface approach offers an easy and fast way to render such a dynamic path. To do so, all spheres of all path components belonging to the dynamic path are used as input to the skin surface computation. The result is a smooth surface representing the extension surface of all components of the dynamic molecular path.To add a dynamic component to this static view, the skin surface can be color-coded by the time of penetration along the path.
