The paper presenting MAD - the Martini Database Server - is now online in JCIM: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jcim.2c01375
MAD is designed for the sharing of structures and topologies of molecules parametrized with Martini. MAD also provides a GUI to convert atomistic structures into CG structures and prepare complex systems. Please check it out: https://mad.ibcp.fr
Whole-cell Martini model

We got him ! Together with the group of Zan Luthey-Schulten we modeled an entire cell (JCVI-Syn3a) at the Martini level of resolution. Featuring more than 60,000 proteins, millions of lipids and metabolites, 500 ribosomes and a 500 kbp circular dsDNA.
For details, read our perspective paper: Stevens et al., 'Molecular dynamics simulation of an entire cell', Frontiers in Chemistry, vol 11, 2023. https://doi.org/10.3389/fchem.2023.1106495
