This talk will describe computer modeling aimed at providing insights
into the existence, structure, size, and thermodynamic stability of
localized domains in multicomponent biological membranes.  Modeling
the lateral organization within a membrane is problematic due to the
relatively slow lateral diffusion rate for lipid molecules so that
microsecond or longer time scales are needed.

 Although atomistic simulations currently are not able to reach this
scale, they can provide data on the intermolecular forces and
correlations that are involved in lateral organization. These data can
be used to parameterize coarse grained models that can reach the time
scales needed for predictions of lateral organization in membranes. In
this talk, I will summarize our modeling efforts in this area of
biological physics.
