The Flows methodology was developed in Professor Mark Sansom's group at the University of Oxford.

The project was started by Matthieu Chavent and Bruno Jobard. The MDAnalysis module was mainly developed by Tyler Reddy with some help from Matthieu Chavent. The VMD plugin is developed by Matthieu Chavent, Caroline Dahl and John E. Stone.

Big membrane systems were created by Joseph Goose (2D planar membrane) and Tyler Reddy (vesicle).
