GMX-MDMAT(1) GROMACS GMX-MDMAT(1)

NAME

gmx-mdmat - Calculate residue contact maps

SYNOPSIS

gmx mdmat [ -f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>]] [-n [<.ndx>]]
          [ -mean [<.xpm>]] [-frames [<.xpm>]] [-no [<.xvg>]]
          [ -b <time>] [-e <time>] [-dt <time>] [-xvg <enum>]
          [ -t <real>] [-nlevels <int>]


DESCRIPTION

gmx mdmat makes distance matrices consisting of the smallest distance between residue pairs. With -frames, these distance matrices can be stored in order to see differences in tertiary structure as a function of time. If you choose your options unwisely, this may generate a large output file. By default, only an averaged matrix over the whole trajectory is output. Also a count of the number of different atomic contacts between residues over the whole trajectory can be made. The output can be processed with gmx xpm2ps to make a PostScript (tm) plot.
