Modeling Viral Capsid Assembly.

Michael F Hagan

Adv Chem Phys 2014;155:1-68

Department of Physics, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, 02454.

I present a review of the theoretical and computational methodologies that have been used to model the assembly of viral capsids. I discuss the capabilities and limitations of approaches ranging from equilibrium continuum theories to molecular dynamics simulations, and I give an overview of some of the important conclusions about virus assembly that have resulted from these modeling efforts. Topics include the assembly of empty viral shells, assembly around single-stranded nucleic acids to form viral particles, and assembly around synthetic polymers or charged nanoparticles for nanotechnology or biomedical applications.

Efficient and Unbiased Sampling of Biomolecular Systems in the Canonical Ensemble: A Review of Self-Guided Langevin Dynamics.

Adv Chem Phys 2012 Jan;150:255-326

Laboratory of Computational Biology, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institutes of Health(NIH), 5635 Fishers Lane, Room T900, Bethesda, MD 20892-9314.

This review provides a comprehensive description of the self-guided Langevin dynamics (SGLD) and the self-guided molecular dynamics (SGMD) methods and their applications. Example systems are included to provide guidance on optimal application of these methods in simulation studies. SGMD/SGLD has enhanced ability to overcome energy barriers and accelerate rare events to affordable time scales. Read More
