A dipeptide nanotube, composed of 2,000 diphenylalanine molecules, is optimized under a two-dimensional lattice wrapping system (see Tsai et al) with an all-atom force field. The constructed tube can be used as a foundation for building an atomic model with the tube geometry observed experimentally.
