In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Special issue on Molecular scale theories and simulations of fluid systems, Professor Tyler Luchko and his team propose a new methods for calculating small molecule hydration energy and entropy, with huge potential for… 901 more words
Molecular recognition is an integral part of many biological reactions. This week’s image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics and the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36). 69 more words
Miquel, Nicolas and I are organizing a workshop in Marseille this November.
This workshop will bring together specialists from different computational fields to discuss simulations of excited-state molecular and supra-molecular phenomena occurring in diverse scales. 22 more words
We recently developed a minimalistic coarse-grained model for lipids and peptides by using the Drude oscillator approach to model the electrostatic component of Hydrogen bonds. With our models, we were able to simulate membrane induced folding of a cationic ß-hairpin, SVS-1 on… 93 more words
