Determines the best ellipsoid to describe a protein
This server draws an ellips that describes the protein you enter. I am not sure
whether thsi is really `the best` ellipsoid. What WHAT IF calculates are the
eigenvalues of the atomic constallation. When I draw the ellipsoid in 3D I normally
observe some residues that stick out of the ellips and roughly equally many spots
where the ellisoid surface is outside the protein surface. I am reasonably certain
that the lengths of three ellipsoid vectors (the three egenvectors EV) represent
well the radii of gyration in the three directions.
