  • Accepted publication in Nature Communications
    Limongelli research group and Marrink research group from the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) have developed a new molecular model based on the Martini coarse grained force field to study drug mechanism of binding to its molecular target. This new approach allows to accurately reconstruct the drugs pharmacological capabilities, qualitatively and quantitatively differentiating between inactive and active compounds as well as their differences in terms of potency. The study has been just published in Nature Communications.
