Fresh online: an extensive tutorial chapter on how to build and simulate complex membranes with Martini 3.
 
Many examples, from simple bilayers to realistic multi-component membranes and curved systems.
 
Free download until end of May.

SARS-CoV-2 model

The group of Chen Song has published a fully-atomistic model of the SARS-CoV-2 envelope, including N-bound RNA segments, obtained after backmapping from a 500 ns Martini simulation (final configuration shown on the left).

For details, see:  Wang et al., Quant. Biology, 2023.
