Run a 3-step energy minimization

First, download the three input files needed:

  • Energy minimization of hydrogen atoms only
  • Energy minimization of water molecules and ions
  • Energy minimization of the whole system

Now, let your already prepared files be and rec.crd. Execute the following sequence of commands:

pmemd -O -i -o min1.out -p -c rec.crd -r rec.m1.rst
pmemd -O -i -o min2.out -p -c rec.m1.rst -r rec.m2.rst
pmemd -O -i -o min3.out -p -c rec.m2.rst -r rec.h.rst

Now you need to generate a pdb file to compare/visualize the results of the E minimization:

ambpdb -p < rec.h.rst > min.pdb

That's all folks!
