What is it about?
The article outlines practices to apply path sampling techniques namely forward flux sampling and transition interface sampling to systems with complex energy landscapes. These techniques are used to study activated processes such as nucleation and conformational transitions in macromolecules like proteins, peptides and polymers.

Why is it important?
Path sampling methods can be used to study activated processes that are relevant to a broad range of fields such as energy, healthcare, and materials science. However, applying these methods to achieve robust results is not easy. Our work provides a practical guide to ensure that these methods are implemented correctly and results are robust.
