The study of membranes and embedded proteins represents an advanced task in the field of molecular simulation. While nowadays a profound selection of sampling techniques, molecular topologies and theoretical approaches is available, the analysis of actual simulation data remains a difficult endeavour.
Even phase transitions within a bilayer can be tracked and visualised in an instructive and convenient way. APL@Voro represents a major improvement for the analysis of complex membrane simulations. The application is available at http://www.aplvoro.org.
