Normal mode analysis and beyond

Normal mode analysis provides a powerful tool in biophysical computations. Particularly, we shed light on its application to protein properties because they directly lead to biological functions. For instance, the effect of external perturbations such as ligand binding and hydrostatic pressure on protein structures can be represented as the shifts of normal mode variables. Normal mode analysis is also applicable to transport properties of proteins. Since the structure and dynamics of protein molecules are highly anisotropic, the flow of energy and heat should also be anisotropic. Based on the harmonic approximation of the heat current operator, it is possible to analyze the communication map of a protein molecule.
