Pitfalls of MARTINI
- Last Updated: Wednesday, 11 September 2019 04:36
As you hopefully would agree, MARTINI can provide you with beautiful simulations that are undoable with all-atom models. However, it is good to always stay aware of the shortcomings of the model. No free lunch ! In a recent paper we discuss some of these shortcomings that result from the building block principle underlying our model (as well as other CG models). We also discuss potential remedies, providing the rationale for the improvements made in the forthcoming Martini 3.0 version. Enjoy !

The group of Bonvin has implemented a scoring function for protein-protein docking, based on the Martini force field, in their successful HADDOCK software package. For details, see: Roel-Touris et al., bioRxiv,
Toxins destroy membrane

Martini simulations from the Hummer group show how toxic peptides form big pores in cholesterol containing membranes.
