g_rmsf_d: calculates atomic fluctuations

NAME

g_rmsf - calculates atomic fluctuations

VERSION 4.0.1

SYNOPSIS

g_rmsf -f traj.xtc -s topol.tpr -n index.ndx -q eiwit.pdb -oq bfac.pdb -ox xaver.pdb -o rmsf.xvg -od rmsdev.xvg -oc correl.xvg -dir rmsf.log -[no]h -nice int -b time -e time -dt time -[no]w -[no]xvgr -[no]res -[no]aniso -[no]fit

DESCRIPTION

g_rmsf computes the root mean square fluctuation (RMSF, i.e. standard deviation) of atomic positions after (optionally) fitting to a reference frame.

With option -oq the RMSF values are converted to B-factor values, which are written to a pdb file with the coordinates, of the structure file, or of a pdb file when -q is specified. Option -ox writes the B-factors to a file with the average coordinates.

With the option -od the root mean square deviation with respect to the reference structure is calculated.

With the option aniso g_rmsf will compute anisotropic temperature factors and then it will also output average coordinates and a pdb file with ANISOU records (corresonding to the -oq or -ox option). Please note that the U values are orientation dependent, so before comparison with experimental data you should verify that you fit to the experimental coordinates.

When a pdb input file is passed to the program and the -aniso flag is set a correlation plot of the Uij will be created, if any anisotropic temperature factors are present in the pdb file.

With option -dir the average MSF (3x3) matrix is diagonalized. This shows the directions in which the atoms fluctuate the most and the least.
