The recent use of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to study flexibility of nucleic acids has been reviewed from an analysis of the publications appearing in the past two years (from 2005 till date). Despite the existence of some unsolved problems in the methodologies, these years have been witness to major advances in the field. Based on a critical review of the most recent contributions, excitement exists on the expected evolution of the field in the next years.
