c – The GROMACS development teams at the Royal Institute of Berendsen, Gromacs User Manual version beta1, (). Refer to the GROMACS 4 publication and the manual for details. As of version , GROMACS supports the use of GPU accelerators for running MD. This tutorial focuses specifically on issues related to dealing with the ligand, This tutorial assumes you are using a GROMACS version in the x or x.

If you use these protocols for your research, I ask that you cite the paper that explains the theoretical background of these tutorials: If you are using an gromxcs version, not all of the features detailed here will work!

As of version 4. There are currently seven tutorials available: Note that in the. Free Energy Fundamentals Theory.

GROMACS Tutorials

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.

Now we want to decouple the ligand from the system in order to get to the bottom-right corner of the cycle. Again, the best thing to do to have an idea of why gromace how this is done is probably to read the original paper. Now the ligand is decoupled bromacs the protein and the solvent.

Free Energy of Solvation: This tutorial describes the procedure for carrying out a simple free energy calculation, the elimination of van der Waals interactions between a simple molecule methane and water.


We are now ready to release the position restraints and run production MD for data collection. The tutorial assumes knowledge of Gromacz 4.

GROMACS 4.6 example: n-phenylglycinonitrile binding to T4 lysozyme

I am continually inundated with help requests and I simply do not have the time to be helpful to everyone. 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. 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.

More complicated systems are discussed. Note that this might not be exactly the gromas you will get even if you use exactly the same input files, parameters and GROMACS version I used but it gives an idea of what sort of value one should expect. When executing mdrun, the program should automatically determine the best number of processors to assign for the PP and PME calculations.

Views Read View source View history. The construction of a biphasic cyclohexane-water system. Briefly, for this exercise the setup is as follows: For a cubic box, the optimal setup will have a PME load of 0.

In this tutorial we will try to obtain the free energy of binding of n-phenylglycinonitrile to T4 lysozyme using an alchemical pathway, in order to reproduce the result obtained manuzl the published work of Boyce et al. This also results in the same free energy difference, just with opposite sign. PME – we’re in luck! At this point we are finally at the top-left corner of the cycle, which means that summing up all the steps done so far we are going to obtain the quantity we are after: In this case we are only turning off coulombic and Lennard-Jones interactions, since the restraints have just been accounted for analytically.


Methods of Free Energy Simulations.

Since we are reprocessing with a long cut-off only the infrequently stored configurations, and we would like to compare the same configurations with long and short cutoffs, we can rerun the two lambda states also with the original.

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. This set of simulations involve a total of 30 windows, and for each of them energy minimization, NVT and NPT equilibration, and production run 1 ns have to be performed. This, in my case, results in:. The results can be obtained again in the same way as we did for the complex.

For consistence with the description of the cycle above, we will start taking care of the simulations involving the complex.
