Stylus: A System for Evolutionary Experimentation Based on a Protein/Proteome Model with Non-Arbitrary Functional Constraints

Assessing shape distortion of vector strokes by comparing with ideal forms.

Colors differentiate the three strokes forming a component of (U+5F35). Dots show vector boundaries. Left: strokes from a vector protein with a proficiency score of 0.4 (shown in Figure 12). Middle: the ideal structure specified by the archetype. Right: scaled vector strokes laid over their archetype forms, with bounding rectangles shaded. Shape distortion is assessed for each stroke individually, the top stroke in this example having no distortion.
