Rapid development of computer power during the last decade has made molecular simulations of lipid bilayers feasible for many research groups, which, together with the growing general interest in investigations of these very important biological systems has lead to tremendous increase of the number of research on the computational modeling of lipid bilayers. In this review, we give account of the recent progress in computer simulations of lipid bilayers covering mainly the period of the last 5 years, and covering several selected subjects: development of the force fields for lipid bilayer simulations, studies of the role of lipid unsaturation, the effect of cholesterol and other inclusions on properties of the bilayer, and use of coarse-grained models.
