Supervised Molecular Dynamics (SuMD)


We have developed a helpful approach to simulate a receptor-ligand recognition pathway based on GPU-driven membrane molecular dynamics simulation in an appreciable short time scale. Combining two very well known and consolidated computational approaches such as molecular dynamics and an a tabu-like algorithm to supervise the evolution of receptor-ligand trajectory, we are able to accurately completely explore the receptor-ligand event in a nanosecond time scale. This approach is also very useful to analyze both orthosteric an allosteric binding events broadening our perspectives in several scientific areas from molecular pharmacology to drug discovery.
