Project description and instructions
To run this simulation you need OpenMM 7.6 or newer and the OpenMM-PLUMED plugin installed. To start the job run the following command line. python n_steps do_relax do_plumed. For example, python 50000 1 0 will minimize the system and run 50,000 steps of MD relaxation while python 5000000 0 1 will read the checkpoint file and continue 5 million steps of meta-eABF simulation. The collective variable is the normalized and periodic Z coordinate of the center of mass (COM) of the PROTAC2 molecule within the domain -0.5, 0.5 where the floating origin of the coordinate system corresponds to the COM of the membrane.NOTES. (1) The COM of the membrane should be computed via the PHASES keyword, the traditional calculation gives highly inaccurate results. (2) We found it beneficial to delay the meta-eABF bias significantly by setting FULLSAMPLES=200000 in the DRR action.
