E. coli Cytoplasm Brownian Dynamics Simulation    |   Sean McGuffee & Adrian Elcock

The simulation shows 1000 individual macromolecules diffusing, colliding and transiently associating with each other over the course of 10 microseconds of simulation; the translational diffusion coefficient of the GFP in this model is in agreement with experimental measurements.

Me too! Hi-Fi visualization & simulation. I've been telling all my friends about it.

I think their lab website is down (at least for the moment), but some videos are available in the supplemental information on their plos paper:

Probably my favorite movie on the entire site... Could watch that simulation for hours trying to gain an 'intuition' for what might really be happening at that scale. Mesmerizing.
