The dynamics of proteins in aqueous solution has been investigated through a massive approach based on "state of the art" molecular dynamics simulations performed for all protein metafolds using the four most popular force fields (OPLS, CHARMM, AMBER, and GROMOS). A detailed analysis of the massive database of trajectories (>1.5 terabytes of data obtained using approximately 50 years of CPU) allowed us to obtain a robust-consensus picture of protein dynamics in aqueous solution.
