However, QM models can treat both the protein and ligand equally well with no parametrization. Figure 4. Benzamidine with the amidine group indicated. QM has already had a major impact on the study of biological systems primarily through its use to build sophisticated classical force field representations of biological macromolecules. However, it is important to keep in mind that the computational study of biological systems at the molecular-level faces two daunting challenges: We must both accurately calculate the energies and forces involved, but we must also sample all relevant states of a system.
QM largely addresses the former, but how to extensively sample biological systems at the QM level of theory remains a challenging issue. Beyond the creation of faster and more accurate QM models, strategies to address the sampling issue will also have to be devised.

Gordon, Mark S. American Chemical Society. A review including the following topics: methodologies, software and parallel computing, applications, and conclusions and prognosis. A generalized many-body expansion and a unified view of fragment-based methods in electronic structure theory J. American Institute of Physics. Fragment-based quantum chem. Unfortunately, the literature on this topic consists of a bewildering array of different methods, with no clear guiding principles to choose amongst them.
Here, we introduce a conceptual framework that unifies many of these ostensibly disparate approaches. The common framework is based upon an approx. This formula generalizes the traditional many-body expansion to cases where the "bodies" fragments share some nuclei in common, and reduces to the traditional many-body expansion for non-overlapping fragments. We illustrate how numerous fragment-based methods fit within this framework. Preliminary applications to mol.
