Feature #2307: Implement MiMiC-based QM/MM functionality in GROMACS

Implement QM/MM updates in GROMACS preprocessor

Added by Viacheslav Bolnykh almost 3 years ago. Updated about 2 years ago.

preprocessing (pdb2gmx,grompp)
Target version:


In order to support the new QM/MM workflow developed within BioExcel (working name MiMiC) we need to implement new features in the preprocessor.

  1. Additional group to define QM/MM atoms (to avoid overlap with an old QM/MM code)
  2. New input file section mimic-grps of type string - to define the QM group
  3. Modifications of options in QMMM section: no (no QM/MM), yes (original QM/MM implementation), mimic (MiMiC QM/MM interface)
  4. Zeroing charges of QM atoms
  5. Update the intra-molecular exclusion lists
  6. Replace bonds between QM atoms with CONNBOND
  7. Add tests for the new functionality

Added by Viacheslav Bolnykh about 2 years ago

Implemented changes to preprocessor to work with MiMiC QM/MM

Added new integrator "mimic" and updated usage of QMMM-grps to be used
with MiMiC QM/MM. Updated code zeros charges within QM region and
changes bonds to CONNBOND and updates exclusion lists to exclude
non-bonded interactions between quantum atoms
