Description

This course is about modelling the behaviour of macromolecular systems (e.g. biomacromolecules such as proteins or supramolecular assemblies such as metal-organic framework materials), using molecular dynamics. The topics covered by this course are: - Force fields (molecular mechanics) and equations of motion (molecular dynamics) - Controlling temperature, pressure, volume within simulations - Practical considerations when running molecular dynamics simulations - Assessing how well simulations match experiment
