Your Name
Your Background: Describe your field of research and professional position.
Success Stories: Describe some successful examples of innovative biomolecular modeling from the past 5 years, from your lab or others, that have contributed a deeper understanding of an experimental study, or have made novel contributions to science.
Instructive Failures: Can you describe an example of a study in biomolecular modeling whose results revealed limitations in modeling or simulations that are instructive to future work?
New Experiments Inspired by Modeling: Can you describe examples where new experiments were performed by experimentalists because of results uncovered by biomolecular modeling?
Knowledge vs. Force-Field Based Predictions: What is your opinion regarding the approaches of knowledge-based prediction/modeling versus force-field based (ab initio) prediction/modeling? Which do you think holds promise for the field in the near future? far future?
Community Exercises: How do you think that community exercises like CASP and RNA-Puzzles have impacted the field? Any suggestions for future initiatives?
Web Games: How have web games like Foldit, folding@home, or EteRNA etc. impacted the field? Any suggestions for future initiatives? How important is the human ability to recognize 3D patterns when trying to visually fold biomolecules?
Algorithmic Contributions: What do you think about the impact of algorithmic contributions versus hardware advances on biomolecular modeling in the long run? For example, can you comment on the importance of areas like coarse-graining and multiscaling compared to atomistic studies of large systems using specialized or faster computers?
Experiment/Modeling Collaborations: Do you believe that molecular modeling is a truly collaborative field between experimentalists and modelers? Is modeling now a respected field on its own right and appreciated by experimentalists? What can you say about the future interaction between modelers and experimentalists?
Software/Hardware Challenges: Can you comment on current challenges/future challenges in simulation software and/or hardware for biomolecules?
Other: Please provide any further comments concerning the current and future state of the field of biomolecular modeling.
