Molecular Dynamics Simulation Service

Protheragen has extensive experience in the field of molecular dynamics simulation (MD) services. Over the years, our computational chemist have provided many simulation services to hundreds of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. MD simulation is a set of molecular simulation methods, which is a powerful tool for studying the interaction of biological macromolecules and chemical compounds, and condensed matter systems. Through molecular dynamics simulation, researchers can obtain the motion trajectory of the atoms in the system and observe various microscopic details of the atomic motion process. Through the dynamic simulation of the research system, we can understand the movement and biological functions of biological macromolecules, the interaction mechanism between protein and small molecules, and the self-assembly process of nanomaterial molecules at the molecular level. Molecular dynamics simulation is a powerful supplement to theoretical calculations and experimental methods, and is widely used in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science, and biomedicine.

Principle of MD

1-1-2-1-9-Molecular-Dynamics-Simulation-Service-1

Under the premise of ignoring the quantum effect of atomic nuclei and the adiabatic approximation of Born-Oppenheimer, molecular dynamics relies on Newtonian mechanics to simulate the motion of molecular systems, and samples are drawn from systems composed of different states of molecular systems, calculate the thermodynamic quantities and other macroscopic properties of the system. In molecular dynamics simulation, empirical potential is generally used to replace the interaction potential between atoms, such as Lennard-Jones potential, Mores potential, EAM atom insertion potential, F-S many-body potential.

Process of molecular dynamics simulation

  • Structure preparation, including structural processing of biological macromolecules and small molecules, coenzymes and solvent molecules;
  • Perform kinetic simulations, including energy optimization, heating, equilibrium phase and production phase;
  • Analyze the trajectory, including RMSD/RMSF, hydrogen bond analysis, cluster analysis, PCA, and binding free energy calculation.

Protheragen currently has molecular dynamics software such as AMBER, GROMACS and NAMD. Relying on the platform's computing resources, it can perform dynamic simulations with a time span of 100ns in a short time. By analyzing the clustering of the simulated trajectory, the relatively stable configuration of each state between the molecules can be obtained, and the mechanism of the interaction between the molecules can be identified by analyzing the interaction mode and the interaction energy between the molecules.

AI-based approaches

  • AI-based molecular dynamics simulation can be used to understand and predict protein sequences, which can solve the folding problem in the prediction process.
  • AI-based molecular dynamics simulation can be used to study the heat transfer of carbon nanotubes (CNT). First, MD simulation is used to analyze the influence of size, chirality and vacancy defects on the thermal conductivity of CNTs. Then the data obtained using MD simulation is input into the AI cluster, and the performance of the proposed model is evaluated relative to the actual results. The MD-based AI model can simulate the thermal conductivity of CNTs well, and can then be used to supplement the analysis solutions developed by MD simulation.
