thank you for the explanation
1) Indeed ED sampling was exactly that I need. It's not quite
understand for me about correct chose of that parameters for biassing
-linfix string Indices of eigenvectors for fixed increment
-linacc string Indices of eigenvectors for acceptance linear
-radfix string Indices of eigenvectors for fixed increment
-radacc string Indices of eigenvectors for acceptance radius
-radcon string Indices of eigenvectors for acceptance radius
What exactly I need is the biasing of the new MD run along one
specified eigenvector which I've extracted from previous run. So it's
not quite understand for me what chose would be most correct e.g
linnear sampling along that eigenvector or rafius expansion.
2) Also I want to perform such biassing along PC mode extracted from
the X-ray data-set of my protein. E.g on first step I calculate PC
from the X-ray data-set consisted of different functional relevant
conformations of my protein ( for this purpose I need create
trajectory from that x-ray data-set firstly). Than I'm looking for one
PC which correspond to biological relevant motion ( e.g opening of
active center seen in first PC). Finally I want to perform MD from one
start structure ( e,g its closed form) along extracted 1 PC from x-ray
data-set. For that step I also must make *.edi file for further md_run
of the protein firslty. Does this workflow correct in general ? :)
3) This FMA technique is very intresting indeed. As I've understood It
can be usefull in case where I could not find biological-relevent
motion along one specified PCs ( In that case the combination of the
PCs might represent this motion which can correspond to one
eigenvector made by FMA). Does it correct ?
Thanks again for help,
