-A review on cys-loop receptors in Structure here
-The locally-closed form for GLIC in 2012, see F1000
-The structure of a complex of general anesthetics with GLIC in 2011, see F1000
-1 micro-second long MD simulation of GLIC in 2010, see F1000
-The structure of the open form of GLIC in 2009, see F1000
-The AquaSol model was extended to include solvent-solvent interactions in PRL, see F1000
a web-based software to calculate SAXS spectra from PDB coordinates,
including the solvent density predicted by AquaSol, is now available on-line.
The dipolar solvent model was described in Biophysical Journal (coll. H. Orland).
The web server of AquaSol and a new implementation due to P. Koehl is here.
MinActionPath (MAP) web server can be used to generate the most probable trajectory between two known structural forms
of the same macromolecule (Franklin et al., 2007).
Installation of NOMAD_Ref web server (see Ref. here).
Installation of PDB_Hydro web server (see Ref. here).
This was later replaced by AquaSol.
These sites provide online servers for algorithms such as normal mode
calculation, structural refinement, solvation, mutation and (later) transition path calculation.
The primary application is for biological macromolecules like proteins or DNA or complexes thereof.
