Here’s an idea I’ve been playing around with.
I want to start a specialized MD journal club, using my article commenting website http://annotatr.appspot.com.

- adding 1 or more comment on the annotatr.appspot.com website
The comment can be anything from, “kinda boring” to a treatise on their method.
Are you guys in?
ps. anybody else you can think of?
Pick a paper, either current or a classic, I started with Atomic-Level Characterization of the Structural Dynamics of Proteins (2010) by David E. Shaw and friends.
Send an email to all those who have accepted with the paper details and the annotatr link, e.g.
Following from the last round, Dr. H has spotted this juicy little paper for us to discuss:
“Can we trust docking results? Evaluation of seven commonly used programs on PDBbind database”
Remember 3 days to read, then 3 days to comment. Do it here:
