CG vesicle


This is an example of a mixture of different coarse-grained biomolecule models (published in different papers), mixed together using MOLTEMPLATE and PACKMOL to build a large coarse-grained vesicle. Some minor adjustments to the force-field were necessary after mixing the three types of coarse-grained molecules together. (Further adjustment may be necessary for realistic results.
