B12: Displaying Electrostatic Surfaces.Electrostatics often plays an important role in biological interactions. For example, many DNA-protein interactions utilize favorable electrostatic interactions.
To display an electrostatic surface on a molecule your first have to create the surface:
1: Select the following set of menu options:
2. You then need to color the surface according to the electrostatic
potential, as follows:
3. The surface you have created also obscures the underlying structure. To see both features you can make the colored surface semi-transparent:
