Biomolecular systems are often challenging to model, because they are inherently multiscale, i.e. small differences in the molecular building blocks can result in significant changes of the larger scale properties. Natural Polysaccharides for instance are typically assembled from a small number of basic sugar types, yet they can display a wide range of exceptional material properties, which derive from their spatial organization. Suitable models need to combine atomistic resolution with coarser representations retaining as much of the characteristics of the highly resolved system as possible.
