dc.description.abstractWe propose a new abstraction set (SynopSet) that has a continuum of visual representations for the explanatory analysis of molecular dynamics simulations (MDS) in the DNA nanotechnology domain. By re-purposing the commonly used progress bar and designing novel visuals, as well as transforming the data from the domain format to a format that better fits the newly designed visuals, we compose this new set of representations. This set is also designed to be capable of showing all spatial and temporal details, and all structural complexity, or abstracting these to various degrees, enabling both the slow playback of the simulation for detailed examinations or very fast playback for an overview that helps to efficiently identify events of interest, as well as several intermediate levels between these two extremes. For any pair of successive representations, we demonstrate smooth, continuous transitions, enabling users to keep track of relevant information from one representation to the next. By providing multiple representations suited to different temporal resolutions and connected by smooth transitions, we enable time-efficient simulation analysis, giving users the opportunity to examine and present important phases in great detail, or leverage abstract representations to go over uneventful phases much faster. Domain experts can thus gain actionable insight about their simulations and communicate it in a much shorter time. Further, the novel representations are more intuitive and also enable researchers unfamiliar with MDS analysis graphs to better understand the simulation results. We assessed the effectiveness of SynopSet on 12 DNA nanostructure simulations together with a domain expert. We have also shown that our set of representations can be systematically located in a visualization space, dubbed SynopSpace.
