The purpose of pdb2gmx is to produce a force field-compliant topology; the output structure is largely a side effect of this purpose and is intended for user convenience. For a cubic box, the optimal setup will have a PME load of 0. We must download the protein structure file with which we will be working. The fifth tutorial instructs the user on how to deal with a protein-ligand system, with a focus on proper ligand parametrization and topology handling.

Select the Force Field: Also somewhat advanced, this tutorial is intended for users who wish vromacs learn to use umbrella sampling to calculate the potential of mean force PMF along a single, linear degree of freedom.

This is a very important choice! Lysozyme Tutorial We must download the protein structure file with which we will be working. Free Energy of Solvation. The process is just like we have seen before, as we will make use of the checkpoint file which in this case now contains preserve pressure coupling information to grompp.

Such technical details are beyond the scope of this tutorial. Lemkul “From Proteins to Perturbed Hamiltonians: Execute pdb2gmx by issuing the following command: The force field will contain the information that will be written to the topology.


At the end of each tutorial you will find my contact information in order to provide commentary or report anything you find lysizyme be incorrect. It is a very compact format, but it has limited precision.

GROMACS Tutorials

The construction of a biphasic cyclohexane-water system. Some commonly used ones are listed here: GROMACS is free, open-source software, and has consistently been one of the fastest if not the fastest molecular dynamics codes available. Lgsozyme the release of version 5. When executing mdrun, the program should automatically determine the best number of processors to assign for the PP and PME calculations.

Another Lysozyme Tutorial

For this tutorial, we will use the all-atom OPLS force field, so type 15 at the command prompt, followed by ‘Enter’. This tutorial guides the user through manual construction of virtual sites for a very simple linear, triatomic molecule CO 2.

A position restraint file. As of version 4. Upon completion of the two equilibration phases, the system is now well-equilibrated at the desired temperature and pressure. Once you’ve had a look at the grokacs, you are going to want to strip out the crystal waters. A nice list of some of the more common cards and their specifications can be found here.

More complicated systems are discussed. Interactively assign charge states for N- and C-termini. This tutorial is more advanced, and is designed for more experienced users who want to simulate membrane proteins and understand force field structure and modification.

Terminal regions may be absent, and may not present a problem for dynamics. The topology for the molecule. We will take a more detailed look at the topology once it has been generated.


Incomplete internal sequences or any amino acid residues that have missing atoms will cause pdb2gmx to fail. Also note that pdb2gmx is not magic.

This information includes nonbonded parameters atom types and charges as well as bonded parameters bonds, angles, and dihedrals. If you prefer to use, for instance, PDB format, all you need to do is to specify an appropriate file name with. PME – we’re in luck! We are now ready to release the position restraints and run production MD for data collection. I hope you find these tutorials useful.

You have now generated three new files: If you are using an older version, not all of the features detailed here will work! Thus, make sure you indicate an appropriate number of nodes for your calculation the value of -np Xso that you can get the best performance.

The purpose of pdb2gmx is to generate three files: This is not true. I am continually inundated with help requests and I simply do not have the time to be helpful to everyone.

Now, on to the fun stuff! Assuming you have one GPU available, the mdrun command to make use of it is as simple as: If you use these protocols for your research, I ask that you cite the paper that explains the theoretical background of these tutorials:
