DESCRIPTION: Current Topics in Membranes provides a systematic, comprehensive, and rigorous approach to specific topics relevant to the study of cellular membranes. Each volume is a guest edited compendium of membrane biology. Articles covered in this volume include Considerations for Lipid Force Field Development; Electrostatics in Biomolecular Simulations: Where Are We Now and Where We Are We Headed; Time and Length Scales in Lipid Bilayer Simulations; Molecular dynamics simulation of lipid-protein interactions; Implicit Modeling of Membranes; Blue Matter: Scaling of N-Body Simulations to One Atom per Node; Multiscale Simulation of Membranes and Membrane Proteins: Connecting Molecular Interactions to Mesoscopic Behavior; Small Molecule Interactions with Lipid Bilayers; On the nature of lipid rafts: Insights from molecularly detailed simulations of model biological membranes containing mixtures of cholesterol and phospholipids; Atomistic and Mean Field Simulations of Lateral Organization in Membranes; Molecular modeling of the structural properties and formation of high-density lipoprotein particle; Gas Conduction of Lipid Bilayers and Membrane Channels; An introduction to voltage-gated K+ channels; Computational Models for Electrified Interfaces; Charged protein side chain movement in lipid bilayers explored with free energy simulation
