Curious to find out what happens here to a poor (Dry Martini) vesicle ?

Check the paper from Wiemann, Nguyen et al., iScience 2022.

Martini Retreat

Two weeks ago we had a wonderful meeting on Malta, uniting some of the core groups working on Martini development.

AI meets Martini

Impressive ! Discovering self-assembling pentapeptides, combining high-throughput Martini simulations with an AI workflow. The AI workflow outperforms human-based selection of optimal pentapeptide sequences from more than 3 million possible mutations. For details, see Batra et al., Nature Chem, 2022.

Lipid A binding to ABC transporter

Molecular dynamics simulations of the ABC transporter MsbA, performed by Lars Schäfer and coworkers, revealed that extensive lateral portal opening is essential to provide access of its large natural substrate core lipid A to the binding cavity.

Cool Martini stuff ! For details, see Galazzo et al., Science Advances (2022) 8,41. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.abn6845
