Molecular Simulations and Design

Molecular Simulations and Design

The Molecular Simulations and Design group is a newly established research group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg.

As such, we are in close contact with experimental groups at the MPI in Magdeburg but also with other national and international collaboration partners.

We are using and developing tools and algorithms from

  • Quantum mechanics
  • QM/MM hybrid simulations
  • Molecular dynamics
  • Brownian dynamics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Protein structural modeling.
The simulations allow us to rationalize experimental results at a molecular level. Such detailed insight is often inaccessible by other means.
