Melting Ice with a Laser
Saturday, 05 January 2008

A new paper by Carl Caleman and David van der Spoel has just been published (on-line) in Angewandte Chemie . The paper describes siumulatios of  the melting of ice by a laser pulse. The laser deposites energy in the OH bond-stretching, and this excitation is tranferred into melting a few ps after the pulse. The paper is in the VIP (Very Important  Paper) category according to  the two referees  (less than 5% of  papers in Angewandte reach this status), and it will be featured on the cover of the printed edition in February 2008. A movie from the simulations is available here .

Some coverage in the popular press of this paper is here (Swedish):

REMD Temperature generator
Saturday, 29 December 2007
The temperature generator for replica exchange molecular dyamics simulations developed by Alexandra Patriksson & David van der Spoel is nearing completion. Please try it out.
Friday, 30 November 2007

The group recently got a prestigious grant from the DEISA (ditributed european infrastructure for supercomputing applications) organization in collaboration with groups from Groningen, Stockholm, Gottingen, Kuopio and London. According to the proposal, entitled XXL-BioMD, we will perform very large scale molecular dynamics simulations using (predominantly) the GROMACS MD code. A press release from DEISA is here

JPCB Letter
Sunday, 04 November 2007
Alexandra's new paper "A Direct Comparison of Protein Structure in the Gas and Solution Phase: the Trp-cage" has appeared as a letter in J. Phys. Chem. B. It features the structural comparison of a small protein in gas and solution phase, after we determined that the charge states are identical. The paper also features semi-empirical energy calculations of these 300 atom proteins in the gas-phase.
