Coupling MD and DFT: DNA translocation through pores
Maria Fyta


In this topic, the sequential use of density functional theory (DFT) and Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations in the process of DNA translocation through narrow pores will be discussed. First, some basic details on both methods will be presented. Second, specific examples in the nanopore field which deal with aspects of the DNA translocation through nanopores using both DFT and MD approaches will be presented.
