The method draws upon remarkable advances in theory and computers since the first protein MD simulation (McCammon, J.A.; et al. Nature 1977, 267,585–590). That first simulation covered 9 ps for a 58-residue protein with four explicit solvent molecules. GaMD allows simulations of systems containing hundreds of thousands of atoms, sampling configurations that evolve on millisecond timescales; corresponding free energy landscapes can be calculated by careful reweighting ..."
