   Does anyone have refs for alternative representations of the
relationships among amino acids?  ie - is there a more graphical (but still
accurate) way of showing the information in a substitution matrix other
than the usual tabular form?
  Star or ellipsoid diagrams, especially 3-D, come to mind, but I haven't
come up with anything within easy reach. I'll summarize if I get anything. 
Or maybe I'll write a grant ....8).

Thanks for your time.
