Thanks Justin for your response just glance below
>> Hi all,
>> I have small doubt on g_density, The bilayer thickness can be estimated by calculating density profile here I have calculated density for different groups in lipid system by g_density command.
>> The POPC density profile x-axis(z-nm) vs y-axis(density), it looks "M" shape what is it mean first high and second high peak exactly?
>Which axis are you analyzing? "x-axis(z-nm)" makes no sense to me. Is your bilayer in the x-y plane (the canonical view), or does it have some other orientation?
I am considering only z-axis but I am plotting these values on X-axis in gnuplot.
>Your output also depends on what you've analyzed. Was it the bilayer as a whole? Just acyl chains? Headgroups?
I am calculating density of Head groups, choline, water and system separately later all these including in a single graph.
what is "M" shape peak refers?
Could clear my doubt.
Thanks in advance.
>Whatever it is that you've analyzed, the output corresponds to the density (kg/m^3) of that species at that point along the box dimension.
>>My idea is based on literature survey first peak tells one half of the bilayer density and other peaks tells remain half of the bilayer density.am I right?
>So you're saying that the overall bilayer density should be the sum of the two peaks you're seeing? I guess the proper interpretation will depend on the answers to the questions I've posed above.
>>Any suggestions would be appreciated.
>>Thanks in adavance
