A theoretical view of protein dynamics

21 July, 2014 - 09:17

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2014, 43,5051-5066
DOI: 10.1039/C3CS60474H, Review ArticleModesto Orozco
Moving from a traditional static picture of proteins to an alternative dynamic paradigm is one of the biggest challenges of structural biology, and the point where modeling can contribute the most. I review here the current state of the art in theoretical methods for dynamic representation of proteins.
