Molecular Dynamics of Protein-CNT(Carbon NanoTubes) Interaction

  • I wish to enquire if there is a way to perform MD of Protein-CNT(Carbon NanoTubes) Interaction on SAMSON.

    Thank you

  • Dear @Ben,

    For simple minimization of protein-CNT, you can use Universal Force Field in SAMSON, but it will not be suitable for MD simulation. You can try using the Gromacs Wizard module for simulation of protein-CNT interactions. See e.g. this tutorial from Gromacs: Gromacs How-To: Carbon Nanotube. But it describes only CNT simulation. As for the simulation of protein-CNT interaction you might need to check which force field to use and maybe modify some FF parameters.

  • Indeed in the current version of the Gromacs Wizard, you will need to have a force field which allows for both biomolecules and CNTs. Then you can add such a force field in the settings of the module. However using a 'one-shot parameterization' (e.g. using the ATB server) will not work at the moment with the Gromacs Wizard.
