Is it correct to say "in molecular dynamics we are faced with..." or should it be "in molecular modeling we are faced with"?

In the paper "DeePCG: Constructing coarse-grained models via deep neural networks", it says: "In molecular dynamics (MD), we are often faced with two types of coarse-graining tasks. In ...

Young's modulus from MD simulation

I have a coarse-grained model of a surface which is almost planar/flat in 2D. Now, I want to compute some of its mechanical properties to test it. Young's modulus is one of the properties that come to ...

Using DPD/LAMMPS how does a protein remains a protein although there are no attractive forces in DPD?

I am new to LAMMPS/DPD (Dissipative particle dynamics), but as i read through DPD model there are three main forces between beads (beads are the spheres consisting of a group of atoms). FC which is a ...

How to define a simple potential in DPD for some type of beads?

I apologize if this is off-topic and if so would be grateful for someone to point me to a relevant source of information. Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) is a quick simulation technique that ...

What kind of systems do we need to coarse-grain to observe interesting phenomena?

When I go to talks, I hear the statement "coarse-graining is required to access spatio-temporal scales to observe important dynamical behavior for stimuli-responsive systems" before they go ...

Back-mapping Martini 3 coarse-grain to all-atom representations [closed]

I have a $10\mu s$ trajectory with 10,000 frames that I would like to backmap to atomistic representations so that I can compare my ensemble to experimental measurements. I am using MartiniTools for ...

What is the purpose of DSSP when using martinize2?

I am studying an IDP with a lot of helical secondary structure, and trying to find a trajectory that I can use as an ensemble that fits my SAXS data. My starting models are the output from the Robetta ...

How can I modify the Martini v2 or v3 force field to increase the Lennard Jones potential well depth (epsilon)?

I am trying to run some coarse-grained simulations of an Intrinsically Disordered Protein (IDP) using the Martini force field, and I want to increase the strength of interaction between water and ...

Understanding the rigorous bridge between atomistic and coarse-grained simulations

I am currently reading this paper by Noid et. al. on the rigorous bridge between atomistic and coarse-grained simulations. In the paper, he defined a linear map from the atomistic coordinates and ...
