[gmx-users] using more than one type of molecules

I use DRGGMX.ITP and DRGPOH.PDB for each type of molecule from the PRODRG. And you suggested that ' If these come from PRODRG, they will probably require manual modification and validation of their contents.' What kind of modifications should I do ? Could you please give me some info about it ? And I 'm planning to obtain a binary mixture ( X : 120 Y : 60 molecules number for example ) . According to your suggestions I will have used DRGGMX.ITP and DRGPOH.PDB files of X molecule, but I will just have used DRGGMX.ITP file of Y molecule. Isn't it important to use DRGPOH.PDB file of Y molecule. Because Y is not a solvent. X and Y are organic molecules. And I think this is the unique way to obtain a binary mixture with using –cp X.pdb –cs Y.pdb in Gromacs usage. Could you explain these significant issues ?

In general, the topol.top should consist of the #include statements for each .itp file, then the [ system ] directive should contain a count of each molecule.
Use editconf to set your box size, and genbox -ci -nmol to insert what you need.

If you are using X as the solute and Y as the solvent, then yes, this is fine. It is just like solvating a protein in water (if X = protein, Y = water).
