Cytoplasmic dynein is responsible for intra-cellular transport in eukaryotic cells. Using Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis (FFEA), a novel algorithm that represents proteins as continuum viscoelastic solids subject to thermal noise, we are building computational tools to study the mechanics of these molecular machines. Here we present a methodology for obtaining the material parameters required to represent the flexibility of cytoplasmic dynein within FFEA from atomistic molecular dynamicsdoi:10.1016/j.ymeth.2020.01.021 pmid:32007556 fatcat:cilnlg2otrdrxmr3bdev2lxw4a
