Lipid bilayers are thin and highly flexible sheets and provide a structural basis for biological membranes. The simulation of small membrane patches in the nanometer regime provides estimates for their local properties, which determine the membrane behavior in the micrometer regime. [more]
Microtubules are long, stiff polymers of αβ-tubulin heterodimers that exhibit a "dynamic instability", in which its ends switch stochastically between growth and shrinking. [more]
