SARS-COV-2 envelope


Finally our integrative model of SARS-Cov-2 is published, representing the most realistic model of this viral envelope to date, with interesting pattern formation of the M-dimers.

Technical difficulties

Dear users,

Over the past week we have experienced technical difficulties, due to which new users did not receive their registration emails. In case you tried to create an account on this website within the past 10 days, please resubmit the registration application. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Optimized cholesterol

Now available: optimized Martini 2 cholesterol model which remedies the artificial  temperature gradients using loose LINCS settings. See for details. Nice work from Fábián, Thallmair, and Hummer !


The paper presenting MAD - the Martini Database Server - is now online in JCIM:

MAD is designed for the sharing of structures and topologies of molecules parametrized with Martini. MAD also provides a GUI to convert atomistic structures into CG structures and prepare complex systems. Please check it out:

Whole-cell Martini model

We got him ! Together with the group of Zan Luthey-Schulten we modeled an entire cell (JCVI-Syn3a) at the Martini level of resolution. Featuring more than 60,000 proteins, millions of lipids and metabolites, 500 ribosomes and a 500 kbp circular dsDNA.
