If you are simulating a system in an attempt to replicate some experimental observable, for example, it is important to use the same salt concentration in your system as is used in the experiment.
It is very important to know and understand the contents of each file before continuing.
By default, only the protein backbone atoms are listed in this file. The log file contains information about the run parameters used for the minimization, as well as various system energies during the minimization. A given moleculetype is followed by and it must be in this order atom information, bond information, pair-wise exclusion information, angles information, dihedral information, improper dihedral information, and, optionally, position restraint information.
Under ‘[ system ]’ is a system title chosen by the user, and under ‘[ molecules ]’ is a list of the moleculetypes found in the topology file, followed by the number of times each moleculetype appears in the coordinate file. The ‘-cp’ flag specifies the coordinate file of the system to be solvated, and ‘-cs spc The second line is the number of atoms.

Navigation menu Personal tools Log in. See the image below. Further, this entire section is repeated for each type of molecule that you have. In brief, this parameter file calls for a steepest descent energy minimization not to exceed 2, steps.
Nevertheless, it still ggomacs be provided on the command line. After you have picked the force field and a gtomacs model compatible with that force field, it is a good idea to read through the output on the screen to make sure there are no Errors or Warnings.
The short answer is that you don’t want the protein to ‘see’ gromacss periodic image across the mmanual of the box. It is a good idea to read the output from ‘genion -h’ in order to gain a full understanding of the command line options.
Ligand preparation and inclusion is covered in another tutorial MD Simulation: The topology file is also provided on the command line so that it may be updated accordingly. These grmacs are fine for this tutorial, but make sure you think very carefully about your choice before picking a force field in your research.
Note that the topology file you generated already contains an include statement to include the moleculetype for TIP3P water and for ions, but because there are no water molecules or ions in our coordinate file, they are not yet 4.5.55 under ‘[ molecules ]’. If you find that for your system the potential energy has converged, and if the maximum force on any atom is below a reasonable tolerance cut-off, then it is okay to proceed to Equilibration MD.
In order for the protein to avoid seeing its image across the periodic boundary, it must be at least twice the cut-off distance from the next nearest image of itself. The command line execution looks like this:.

A quick look back at the original PDB file reveals that the four residues at the C-terminus of ubiquitin in 1UBQ were not as well resolved as the rest of the protein. Not all of the sections must be present. It mostly depends on the complexity of the system and the quality of the original starting structure.
It is important to note that rectangular boxes can be very inefficient, especially for globular proteins like ubiquitin. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the contents of the ‘forcefield. In order for it to work, however, it requires a pre-processed input file with extension.

Ensure that the changes make sense, and it is okay to proceed. With ‘-bt triclinic’ you are choosing to create a rectangular box. Using the steepest descent method, small systems may equilibrate after only a few hundred steps; larger systems may may take several thousand steps. The final section only includes two sub-sections. The ‘genion’ tool searches through your coordinate file and will randomly replace water molecules with ions.
Are there any ligands or non-standard residues present in the PDB file?
