Temperature gradients



Be careful simulating membranes containing cholesterol to avoid temperature gradients developing. Read how to handle these systems in the publication that just appeared in JPCB, by Thallmair et al.: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acs.jpcb.1c03665

Molecular Postman

Together with researchers from Utrecht University, we have been able to visualize the 'molecular postman' that delivers important proteins, like antibodies and some hormones, to the outside of the cell. The research is published today in Molecular Cell: https://authors.elsevier.com/c/1dZX53vVUPGKEs

Martini workshop 2021

Martini 3.0 online workshop - 1-3 September 2021. 
We are happy to announce the next Martini workshop, which will take place online as traveling options are still limited. The three day workshop will consist of a number of pre-recorded lectures and associated Q&A session by some of the key Martini developers, as well as dedicated tutorial sessions where students can practice both basic and advanced Martini simulations under the guidance of expertised assistants. Topics we will cover include, of course, the ins and outs of the latest Martini version, Martini 3.0, and the growing list of associated tools and methods such as martinize2, insane, backwards, TS2CG, polyply, titratable Martini and the Martini database.
Registration for the event is now closed!
Looking forward to meeting you online !

For protein-lipid afficionados: The Tieleman group has developed a new webserver coined ProLint, a user-friendly framework for the automated analysis and interactive visualization of Protein-Lipid interactions, supporting the Martini forcefield. The webportal can be accessed at https://www.prolint.ca/, and details are described in this paper.
