International Workshop on Biomembranes: The consequences of complexity
Sponsored by CECAM, Finnish IT Center for Science, Espoo, Finland. August 16 – 19 2016
Chemical interactions, lateral heterogeneity, and the lipid zoo. Lipidomic studies of membranes reveal a huge diversity of lipid types, the composition of which varies with cell and membrane type. All-atom models have recently been shown to quantitatively capture the chemistry of laterally heterogeneous mixtures, and a coarse-grained representation of the plasma membrane has just been published.
