Complex membranes reviewed

10 January 2019

Together with several co-authors, we wrote a comprehensive review (>700 references) on computer simulations of cell membranes. In this field, we are witnessing a transition from simulations of simpler membrane models to multicomponent systems, culminating in realistic models of an increasing variety of cell types and organelles. Here, we review the state of the art in the field of realistic membrane simulations and discuss the current limitations and challenges ahead. S.J.Marrink, V. Corradi, P.C.T. Souza, H.I.
