Abstract: In the present we focus on the optical properties of the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), which are modelled using the state-of-the-art computational tools availeable up to date: the Density Functional Theory (DFT) in the Hybrid QM/MM approach is employed to access the ground state configuration of the chromphore in the protein environment, while Time-Dependent DFT and quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) relate the geometry to the abserved absorption spectra.
