Computer simulation studies of biological membranes: Progress, promise and pitfalls

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Because of the complexity of biological membranes, computer simulations are useful adjuncts to experimental work in their study. Simulations of model membranes have provided new insights. Progress in simulating more biologically realistic membranes will require further development of statistical mechanical theory applied specifically to these systems, in conjunction with the use of powerful computers.
