lipidbook - force field parameters for membrane simulation

How and when to use a particular force field? Why would you choose one force field over the other? What are the merits, what are the caveats?

lipidbook - force field parameters for membrane simulation

Post by oliver » Sun Jan 10, 2010 1:52 pm

A shameless plug for a new website that we developed: lipidbook.bioch.ox.ac.uk is a repository for force field parameters that are used in simulations of membranes and membrane proteins.

You can
  • download parameter sets
  • find the paper in which the parameters were published
  • comment on parameter sets
  • upload parameter sets (requires registration with valid e-mail)
lipidbook is currently in beta testing. Please feel free to notify us of any problems via our Issue Tracker.
