Go for a Martini at the Bar

The power of combining Go-potentials with Martini is nicely demonstrated in this paper from Poma and co-workers, showing how the flexibility and membrane binding mode of an F-Bar protein can be accurately captured: Mahmood et al., Front. Biomol. Sci., 2021. https://doi.org/10.3389/fmolb.2021.619381

Want to do fancy simulations ? Perhaps Moltemplate is a suitable tool - it can now generate input files which allow you to run Martini simulations for complex systems using LAMMPS.

A cool example of validating Martini in capturing the phase behaviour of wax-water mixtures under confinement, fundamental to industiral processes such as the synthesis of transportation fuels. For details, see this paper from Economou and coworkers.

Be careful - drinking too many Martinis or being an inexperienced drinker may cause a severe hangover.
A recent paper from the Voth group provides a clear example of this downside, in particular the entropy-enthalpy compensation which is inherent to CG models in general, including Martini.
For details, see: Jarin et al., JCTC, 2021.
