Molecular Dynamics Simulations on DNA Y10K

Recent progress in the area molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on DNA over the last 10 years will be presented, with an emphasis on force field developments, convergence and stability at the nano- to microsecond level, and the state of validation based on comparisons with diverse experimental physical methods. Results on the sequence effects on dynamical structure based on MD on all tetranucleotide steps by the ABC consortium will be described, and current research on DNA axis bending and flexibility will be included.
