Today I've done 1ns npt equilibtation of my system
this is the final result of this stage of simulation
So I wounder to discuss some notes with imerged during the simulation
1- As you see some water molecules have moved into membrane during NPT
phase. Why it might occurs? I hope that during simulation hydrophobic effect
would exclude it from the membrane
2- Also during the npt stage, the box size of the whole system in
Z-dimension was shrinked from 6.5 to 4.5 nm. Why this might occur?
3- Finally on the finall MD stage I've obtained some notes form grompp
NOTE 1 [file md.mdp]:
nstcomm < nstcalcenergy defeats the purpose of nstcalcenergy, setting
nstcomm to nstcalcenergy
What does it means?
NOTE 2 [file md.mdp]:
leapfrog does not yet support Nose-Hoover chains, nhchainlength reset to 1
I've found that exactly Nose-Hoover thermostat is more accurate for the
membrane proteins. But from that note it seems that this thermostat is not
supported by MD integrator, isnt it?
