Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations at the atomic scale are a powerful tool to study the structure and dynamics of model biological systems. However, because of their high computational cost, the time and length scales of atomistic simulations are limited. Biologically important processes, such as protein folding, ion channel gating, signal transduction… CONTINUE READING
