The future of biomembrane simulations: hidden pitfalls and future challenges
- Monod Campus
Conference room - Centre Blaise Pascal
Having focused on simple model systems for two decades, molecular simulations of lipid membranes have recently started exploring more complex compositions and geometries, in an attempt to better account for the immense complexity of biological systems. What challenges lie ahead for molecular simulations of biological membranes? Which problems need to be solved during the next decade to make progress in this field? These questions are the focus of the CECAM workshop we are organizing.
Different sessions will be devoted to the future of force fields (both atomistic and coarse-grained), the challenges of rigorous, meaningful com-parisons between simulations and experimental measurements, and the challenges in simulat-ing complex systems (complex compositions, interaction with nano-sized particles of biological and synthetic origin, non-equilibrium effects).
1a. Atomistic and coarse grain force fields
1b. Linking experiment and simulation
