[gmx-developers] Gromacs on Mare Nostrum (Barcelona Supercomputing Centre)

I also saw this report, which seemed to me a bit strange as they
recently reported extensive simulations using GROMAS (Rueda M,
Ferrer-Costa C, Meyer T, Perez A, Camps J, Hospital A, Gelpi JL,
Orozco M. A consensus view of protein dynamics. PNAS. 2007;104(3):796-801.)
Note however that they used a serial version of GROMACS in the paper.
I do not think that this report means much. They explain very
little about their setup and protocole, which might explain the
deviation from the exp structure.
I am in contact with somebody using the Mare Nostrum, that would be
useful to get a working version on it! Did you install one?
