Chemistry - Physical Chemistry Seminars

The ultimate microscope, directed at a cell, would reveal the dynamics of all the cell’s components with atomic resolution. In contrast to their real-world counterparts, computational microscopes are currently on the brink of meeting this challenge. In this seminar, I will show how an integrative approach can be employed to model an entire cell, the minimal cell JCVI- syn3A, at full complexity with the Martini coarse-grain force field. This step opens the way to interrogate the cell’s spatio-temporal evolution with molecular dynamics simulations, an approach that can be extended to other cell types in the near future.
