I'm interested in learning about computational modeling in biophysics. I have heard some amount about people modeling proteins as a network of ideal springs to examine things like conformation switching. I was thinking it would be cool to try to make a very simple model of a small motif undergoing denaturation at certain temperatures while being stable at others.
Does anyone know of a good reference about protein modeling that would be understandable to someone who is decent with math/physics/programming but is in no way a mathematician/physicist/computer scientist?
Also, if you have a better idea of a simple project for me to practice computational modeling in biophysics (or even just any biology) I would appreciate hearing it.
