On the road to simulating life with molecular detail

PhD ceremony:B.M.H. (Bart) Bruininks, PhD
When:May 21, 2021
Supervisor:prof. dr. S.J. (Siewert-Jan) Marrink
Co-supervisor:dr. A.H. (Alexander H) de Vries
Where:Academy building RUG

We start off with a full chapter dedicated to high school students focussing on the basic of what it means to make a (toy) model of moving particles. After this introduction to the molecular dynamics way of thinking we move on to a full-fledged force field (Martini). The other chapters will cover different apspects of modelling. These aspects are initial state building, two case studies (lipid-DNA nanoparticles and a nanodroplet on skin) and  advanced analysis.
