[gmx-developers] help for integrating minimization algorithm

i found an entry point to implement my minimizer. I basically replaced the
search direction inside do_steep() in minimize.c. Now I encounter another
as soon as I translate a sequence to a pdb-file I get an alpha-helix as a
start structure. When I minimize by using the integrator "steep" gromacs
seems to penalize anything that wants to break the alpha-helix. I read here
and there that this may be a setting inside gromacs concerning restraints
and constraints. The minimizer that I apply is a (quasi) global optimizer,
therefore I need to be able to find a configuration of my input files for
mdrun such that I can aggressively alter the starting structure without
getting problems with any restraints and constraints ripping apart.
Do you have a suggestion for a setup in order to do global optimization?
Best Regards and Thank you for any help,

How about do_cg (conjugate gradients)?
