Dear Blaise,

To embed a protein into a membrane model, you could try the mdrun program modified by Drs. Tieleman and Smith, available at:


(Look for mdrun_make_hole.tar.gz <http://www.gromacs.org/contributions/uploaded_contributions/mdrun_make_hole.tar.gz>). A tutorial will be included in share/tutor/make_hole upon installation.

You will also need to generate accessible molecular surface for your protein with GRASP or MSMS (see tutorial). 

Finally, in your share/top directory, you should include the newest ffgmx_lipids.tar.gz
available at:


that incorporates the parameters from the lipid.itp.

Kind regards,
