Dear MD community,

we have set up a web server that automatically sets up membrane
simulation systems containing an arbitrary mixture
of different lipids. The server, called MemGen
(memgen.uni-goettingen.de) is not restricted to a specific set of lipid
types, force fields, or MD software. Instead, MemGen works with any
all-atom or united-atom lipid.

The user uploads lipids in one of various file formats (pdb, crd, xyz,
ml2, gro), and the webserver returns a PDB file
of the lipid patch with the requested number relative concentration of
the lipids, requested number of water molecules
per lipid, and salt content. Counterions are always added.

Please give it a try at:


Happy simulating!

The MemGen team at the University of Göttingen
