What you see on the VMD display is its best guess as to how things are
connected. That's not always right. The topology is always right. That's why

You have provided no useful information about what these RDF plots are or how
you acquired them, so there's no point for either of us in guessing. Maybe the
distribution(s) that you're looking at simply don't vary as a function of

It's an amino acid in water; it's as easy of a protein system as there is.
There's nothing special about it that requires a tutorial.
