Birth and future of multiscale modeling of macromolecules.

Organised by Department of Computer Science.

Multiscale models for complex chemical systems emerged in 1967. Simplifications formed at the dawn of computational structural biology used computers that were almost a billion times less cost-effective than today. These same multiscale models have become increasingly popular, applied to simulation of atomic protein motion, protein folding and explanation of enzyme catalysis.
