Extracting coarse grain sequence-dependent model parameters for rigid base and rigid base-pair models of DNA from molecular dynamics simulations of DNA

11AM – 12PM
Professor John H. Maddocks
The base pair sequence of DNA is generally believed to modulate its physical properties, for example stiffness and intrinsic curvature, in a
biologically significant way. I will describe both completed and ongoing work aimed toward quantifying these modulations at a coarse grain level
starting from simulations at the atomistic level.
