Frontiers in Multiscale Modeling of Photoreceptor Proteins
Photochemistry and Photobiology
This perspective article highlights the challenges in the theoretical description of photoreceptor proteinsusing multiscale modeling, as discussed at the CECAM workshop in Tel Aviv, Israel. The participants have identified grand challenges and discussed the development of new tools to address them. Recent progress in understanding representative proteins such as green fluorescent protein, photoactive yellow protein, phytochrome, and rhodopsin is presented along with methodological developments.
