The need for detailed models and dynamics of virus particles is clear, as part of our fight against pandemics such as COVID. Given the size and composition of typical viruses, the use of Martini to simulate their behavior is apparent. Indeed, viruses have already been targeted with Martini, including the capsid of the Cowpea Mosaic virus , and enveloped ones such as Influenza A virion , Dengue , and flavivirus . More examples are reviewed in [5,6].
