Quick question. Did you make these on a 64-bit computer. I'm trying to install this plugin but Ableton isn't recognizing the file. I'm concerned that this plugin may be 32-bit. Do you happen to know if it is?
While the BX team doesn't want to ask for "donations", you can certainly support BX by buying some cool BX plugins, or some of their merchandise. Any financial support helps in times like these, and Dirk and the BX team would be relieved to see some strong sales in the near future to help with the rebuilding of the BX space in Germany, which currently leaves almost 60 employees without an actual work space.
Plugins in PyCharm extend its core functionalities and give a smooth programming experience to the programmer. As an example, by using these plugins we can add some features such as coding assistance support for various languages and frameworks, shortcut hints, live previews, integration with version control systems, etc. In the plugin market space in PyCharm, we can find various plugins for different purposes.
We can define H2O wave as an open-source Python development framework used to develop real-time interactive AI apps. Having a plugin for this kind of platform will make it super easier for the developers who are working with wave application developments. With that perspective, H2O has released H2O Snippet as the plugin for PyCharm. It is available in the marketplace to directly install, or we can install it via this link. Once after installation, restart the IDE to effect the changes.
Another benefit we can achieve by using the wave plugin is, it suggests all the icons we can use within the application. Therefore, we no need to spend our time searching for the availability of these items. It is demonstrated below by extending the same example used in the previous section.
Another specific feature covered with this plugin is, it reminds us of what we already defined for a client within the code. We no need to remind all of them while we are working with a long codebase. As a demonstration of the above point, the code I used previously can be used as below.

CG Builder supports two methods of creating a coarse grained model:A residue-based method, in which two or more particles froman all atom representation map onto a single "bead". A given bead willbe placed at the center of mass of the atomic group defining it. Any atomsnot defined as part of a CG Bead will be left alone. Prior to coarse graining,CG bead definitions are read from a file using the format specified below. A shape-based method, where a neural network learning algorithm isused to determine the placement of neurons (or CG beads). The CG beads have massescorrelated to the clusters of atoms which the beads are representing.The shape-based method can be applied to molecules in PDB form, or to electrondensity maps where a full atom PDB might not even be available.The graphical interface is available under Extensions | Modeling | CGBuilder from within VMD. First, you choose what you want to do: convertan all atom model to a coarse-grained one (and the particular method to use), oryou can convert a previously converted coarse-grained model back toall-atom.First, you will need to convert an all-atom representation to a coarse grainedrepresentation. Residue-based Coarse Graining (RBCG)This method has been originally reported in the following publications: Coarse grainedprotein-lipid model with application to lipoprotein particles.Amy Y. Shih, Anton Arkhipov, Peter L. Freddolino, and Klaus Schulten.Journal of Physical Chemistry B, 110:3674-3684, 2006. Assembly oflipoprotein particles revealed by coarse-grained molecular dynamicssimulations.Amy Y. Shih, Peter L. Freddolino, Anton Arkhipov, and Klaus Schulten.Journal of Structural Biology, 157:579-592, 2007. The sample coarse-graining scheme provided for the RBCG method in the CG Builderfollows that reported in the two publications above, and, for lipids, water, andions, that of the Marrink's CG model (Marrink et al., J. Phys. Chem. B,108:750-760 (2004); and Marrink et al., J. Phys. Chem. B, 111:7812-7824 (2007)).This scheme employs a correspondence of about 10 atoms per CG bead. For example,a DOPC lipid is represented by 14 CG beads: one for the choline group, one forthe phosphate group, two for each of the glycerol groups, and ten to representthe two hydrocarbon tails. Four water molecules are represented by a single CGbead; an ion together with its first hydration shell (six water molecules) isrepresented by one CG bead. Each amino acid is represented by two CG beads, onefor the backbone and one for the side-chain (glycine is represented by a singlebackbone CG bead).However, when using the residue-based coarse-graining in the CG Builder, onedoes not have to follow the sample CG scheme. As explained below, one can create arbitrary definitions ofwhich atoms correspond to which CG bead, and use those to create their own RBCGmodels with the CG Builder.Create a RBCG ModelThe CG Builder requires you to have the appropriate all-atommolecule loaded into VMD. You can then choose the correct VMD molecule fromthe dropdown list. If you don't have the molecule loaded, you can load itin VMD and then choose it from this dropdown. If the molecular information(in the PDB file or whatever source you have) does not include a segment ID,the entire molecule is assumed to be in the same segment.You must define the relationship between the desired CG beads and the atomsin your all atom representation. Sample relationships (database files) aregiven for proteins and for water. If you want to use these, you can justclick the 'Add' button next to the file and it will be used for the CGmapping.You can also create your own bead database definitions.Instructions are given below.Once you have a file(s) with these custom bead definitions, you can load theminto the interface. Browse to the bead definition file and then select'Add' next to the Browse button. VMD will load the bead definitions andthe number of 'Bead Definitions Currently Loaded' should increase by theexpected amount.The Residue-based CG Builder produces two output files. The first is therevised PDB file reflecting the coarse grained beads instead of all-atom. Asample filename is given based on the molecule name loaded, but you can changeit as desired.To be able to properly return to an all-atom representation, CG Builder willneeds a work file that is a 'Reverse Coarse Graining File'. Again, a samplefilename is given. The important thing is that this file isn't lost, because itwill be needed when you want to convert the coarse-grained system back to theall-atom representation.Once the Residue-Based CG PDB file is produced, one can prepare theResidue-Based CG system for a simulation in essentially the same way as it isdone for all-atom systems. VMD provides a sample RBCG topology file,rbcg-2007.top, in the cgtools directory in your plugin path whichcan be used with psfgen or AutoPSF tocreate the complete PDB and PSF pair for a simulation. The simulation can beperformed using the RBCG parameter file provided with VMD,rbcg-2007.par (also in the cgtools directory in your plugin path).For the details on the simulation settings, please see the followingpublications that employed the Residue-Based CG model: Assembly of lipoprotein particles revealed by coarse-grained molecular dynamicssimulations. Amy Y. Shih, Peter L. Freddolino, Anton Arkhipov, and KlausSchulten. Journal of Structural Biology, 157:579-592, 2007. Assembly of lipids and proteins into lipoprotein particles. Amy Y. Shih, AntonArkhipov, Peter L. Freddolino, Stephen G. Sligar, and Klaus Schulten. Journal ofPhysical Chemistry B, 111:11095-11104, 2007. Four-scale description of membrane sculpting by BAR domains. Anton Arkhipov,Ying Yin, and Klaus Schulten. Biophysical Journal, 95:2806-2821, 2008.Reverse Previously RBCG Model Back To All-AtomAfter running the simulations, you will likely have coarse grained moleculesthat you need to convert back to all-atom. The CG Builder plugin currentlysupports reverse coarse graining for Residue-based coarse graining.This implementation of the reverse coarse-graining has been firstreported in: Disassemblyof nanodiscs with cholate. Amy Y. Shih, Peter L. Freddolino,Stephen G. Sligar, and Klaus Schulten. Nano Letters, 7:1692-1696,2007. The coarse grained molecule that you wish to convert back to all-atomneeds to be loaded in VMD and selected as the Coarse-Grained Molecule. In addition, CG Builder needs to have the original all-atommolecule available and loaded into VMD. Select this molecule as theAll-Atom Molecule. You will need to specify the work file that was savedin the earlier step as the Rev CG File. And, the reconstructed all-atomrepresentation molecule will be saved as PDB file with the given name.A simulated annealing run from NAMD will usually need to be run after reconstruction of the all-atom model. The annealing run needs to be run in aspecific way, so the CG builder tool can create the proper NAMD configurationfiles to use. By default the CHARMM parameter file (used by several otherVMD plugins) will be used for the config file, but you can alter this asdesired. In addition, the PSF filename will be needed for the NAMD simulation.Shape-based Coarse Graining (SBCG)This method was first reported in the following publications: Stability anddynamics of virus capsids described by coarse-grained modeling.Anton Arkhipov, Peter L. Freddolino, and Klaus Schulten.Structure, 14:1767-1777, 2006. Coarse-grainedmolecular dynamics simulations of a rotating bacterial flagellum.Anton Arkhipov, Peter L. Freddolino, Katsumi Imada, Keiichi Namba, andKlaus Schulten. Biophysical Journal, 91:4589-4597, 2006. Four-scale description of membrane sculpting by BAR domains. Anton Arkhipov,Ying Yin, and Klaus Schulten. Biophysical Journal, 95:2806-2821, 2008. Simulations of membrane tubulation by lattices of amphiphysin N-BAR domains. Ying Yin, Anton Arkhipov, and Klaus Schulten. Structure, 2009.Shape-based coarse graining uses a neural network algorithm to learnthe best location in which to place the CG beads. The placement is thenadjusted (usually slightly) based on the centers of mass of the atomicclusters comprising each bead. A technical description of what theshape-based CG algorithm does is available at the TCBG's Shape-based CGweb page.Create a SBCG Model Shape-based coarse graining can act upon either a molecule loaded in PDB/PSFform, or an electron density map. Choosing the proper option will slightlymodify which elements of the form need to be given.Starting From A Molecule - If you have a molecule, the CG Builderrequires you to have the appropriate all-atom molecule loaded into VMD. You canthen choose the correct VMD molecule from the dropdown list. If you don't havethe molecule loaded, you can load it in VMD and then choose it from thisdropdown. In addition, you will want to load in an appropriate PSF file for themolecule, as certain values from the PSF file are used for the placement andassignment of properties for the CG beads. Specifically, the PSF file containsinformation about the mass and charge of every atom. If the PSF file is notprovided, VMD will guess masses of the atoms (usually, VMD's guess is quitegood), but all charges will be assumed to be 0.0. In this case, the CG modelwill reflect the mass distribution well, but it will not contain any informationabout the charge distribution.Starting From An Electron Density Map - If using an electron density map, you will need to choose the location on yourdisk of a SITUS or .DX file that contains the map.Mass of the CG model - If you choose to do so, you can specify thedesired total mass of the resulting CG model (which will get put into thetopology file). When starting with a molecule, this typically won't benecessary. The molecule will contain enough information about the atoms thatthe mass can be properly determined. If, for whatever reason, you want to scalethe masses of the CG beads you might want to specify the final mass, though.When starting with an electron density map, being able to specify the total massof the CG model is much more useful, though. After calculating the location ofeach CG bead and how much of the density maps that is being represented by eachbead, the algorithm will take the total mass value that you have provided andscale each CG bead accordingly. Learning ParametersNumber of Beads - Choose the number of beads that you want to createfrom the original molecule. If you choose a number that is too large, you standa good chance of having some beads created which don't have any actual realatoms associated with them. If this happens, rerun the model creation withfewer beads. The plugin will default to number of atoms divided by 500if using a molecule as input. If using an electron density map youwill need to provide a reasonable value (the default number of beads will be the number of density points divided by 550).Number of Learning Steps - By default, this is 200 times the number ofdesired beads. You can set it to anything that you wish, though."Lambda" and "eps" are parameters used by the learning algorithm. The defaultvalues for Initial/Final eps and Initial/Final Lambda in the plugin are areasonable choice that will work in most cases. You can change these valuesif needed. By default, the initial value for lambda will be 0.2 times thenumber of desired beads. Other default values are independent of the numberof beads.Bond Cutoff - Cut-off distance for establishing bonds betweenbeads (in angstroms).Frac Cutoff - This parameter (only used when working with densitymaps) should be a number between zero and one. Regions of the map with density values below this number (times the maximum density value in thecurrent map) will be neglected. CG Residue Name - Three characters or fewer. This residue name will beprinted in the output files.CG Name Prefix - For naming the CG atoms and types. This should be asingle character. If 'A' is used, atom names will be A1, A2, etc.Output Files - The Coarse-Grained PDB file, the topology file, and theparameter file will contain information about the beads, their locations,connections, charges, etc. The All-Atom Reference PDB (which only applies ifyou are starting from a molecule and not an electron density map) will be the sameas the original molecule, but the beta field for each atom will containthe index number of the bead to which the atom was assigned. After building the coarse grain model, one would normally run psfgen(can be conveniently done by using AutoPSF plugin of VMD:Extensions | Modeling | Automatic PSF builder)on the coarse grained structure (using a coarse grain topology file) andthen be ready to begin simulations.Map A Previously Generated SBCG Model To An All-Atom ModelWhen one works with multiple copies of the same molecule, e.g., protein units ina virus capsid, it is often desirable to construct a CG model for a single copy,and then use exactly the same model for all other copies. For each copy, the CGmodel should be translated and rotated to match the position and orientation ofthe copy. This can be achieved using the ``Map Shape-Based CG to All-Atom''interface. In addition to translation and rotation, the interface can alsodistort the CG model, if the all-atom molecule copy is in a differentconformation than the originally coarse-grained all-atom molecule.Each CG bead in a coarse grained molecule has a respective domain in an all-atomreference molecule. Atoms from each domain of the reference molecule cancorrespond to atoms of an all-atom molecule that we want to map onto (for twoatoms to be declared identical, segname, resid, and name should match). A beadthat represents the center of mass of a given all-atom reference molecule domainshould be moved to the center of mass of the corresponding domain in themolecule we wish to map onto.The script takes three molecules loaded in VMD as input.Coarse-Grained Molecule: CG model of the reference molecule.Reference Molecule: An all-atom reference PDB for the CG model.(Best to have a PSF file loaded into this molecule so that atom massesare correctly taken into account)All-Atom Molecule To Map Onto: The copy of the reference all atommolecule, which you want to map the CG molecule onto.Note: The all-atom molecule to map onto does not have to be exactly the same asthe reference all-atom molecule. For example, it may miss some atoms that arepresent in the reference molecule, such as hydrogen atoms in a model of aprotein. The mapping plugin still should be able to do a good job of mappingthe CG model onto the all-atom molecule, unless there are too many atomsmissing, or the conformation is too distant from the reference molecule.To enable the flexibility described above, each bead is placed into the centerof mass of the corresponding all-atom domain, rather than aligning the whole CGstructure with the all-atom structure.Output PDB Filename: Desired filename for newly mapped CG molecule.Assign Lennard-Jones Parameters For SBCG Model From All-Atom ModelWhen one creates an SBCG model using the shape-based coarse-graining tool of theCG Builder, a CHARMM-style parameter file is prepared that reflects the topologyof the SBCG model. However, parameters in this file are assigned verysimplistically, using only structural considerations (such as the size of anall-atom domain represented by each CG bead). These parameters can be furtherrefined to introduce more realism and specificity into the model, as describedin the following for the case of non-bonded interations.This tool extracts solvent accessible surface area (SASA) for each atomic domainrepresenting a CG bead from an all-atom structure corresponding to the CGstructure. The values extracted are SASA for the whole domain (in the contextof the rest of the structure) and SASA for hydrophobic residues only. Thesevalues are used to assign the LJ well depths Ei to individual CGbeads, as Ei = ELJ *(SASAi[hydrophobic]/SASAi[total])2, where ELJis an adjustable constant. Radius of gyration is used to compute LJ radii; LJradius Ri is obtained as Ri = r_gyri + RLJ,where r_gyri is the radius of gyration for all atoms represented bythe ith CG bead and RLJ is an adjustable constant.Input: The Original CG Param File is the parameter file that is createdwhen creating a shape-based CG model.Input: The all-atom reference structure should be loaded in VMD already;this structure should have beta values filled with numbers corresponding to theCG beads' numbers; since radius of gyration is computed, it is better to loadthe PSF file into the structure too, so that correct masses are used.Input: The maximum energy value for the Lennard-Jones well depth, (ELJ) inkcal/mol.Input: an addition to the Lennard-Jones radius (RLJ) in Angstroms.Output: The Output Parameter Filename will store the newly assigned Lennard-Jones parameters.Extract Bond/Angle Parameters of CG Model from the All-Atom SimulationBetter bond and angle parameters of a CG molecule can be obtained by doinga brief (the longer the better, though) all-atom simulation and analyzing the results. These results can then be used to improve the CG model.Input: The CG PSF File is the PSF file from the CG model. This mighthave been created with psfgen.Input: The CG PDB File is the PDB file from the CG model. This mightbe a byproduct of psfgen.Input: The AA PDB File is the all-atom PDB file. This pdf file needsto have beta values that indicate the CG bead IDs of each atom. This information will be an automatic result of using the 'Create SBCG Model' option of this tool.Input: The AA DCD File is the trajectory from the short all-atom simulation. Input: The Simulation Temperature is the temperature that was specified in the NAMD configuration file for the short all-atom simulation.Output: The Parameter output filename will store the new CGparameters.Output: The Bond Data output filename doesn't contain additionalinformation above what the output parameter file contains. It just doesn'thave all of the extra comments that a parameter file typically has. If youdo multiple short all-atom trajectories you can run this option on each trajectory. The bond/angle files can be used to compare the calculatedparameters across these trajectories. (xmgrace works well on these files)Output: The Angle Data output filename doesn't contain additionalinformation above what the output parameter file contains. It just doesn'thave all of the extra comments that a parameter file typically has. If youdo multiple short all-atom trajectories you can run this option on each trajectory. The bond/angle files can be used to compare the calculatedparameters across these trajectories. (xmgrace works well on these files)Scale Bond and/or Angle Spring Constants In A Parameter FileSometimes you might find that you need to scale the spring constants ofbonds and/or angles that you have in a parameter file. This modulecan easily do this for you.Input: The Input Parameter File is the parameter file that needs tohave the constants scaled.Input: The Bond/Angle Spring Constant Scaling is the multiplier that you want applied to the bond/angle spring constants in the file. If you have a value of 1 here, the constants will not be modified. If you have a value of 2, the constants will be doubled (see cutoff, below).Input: The Bond/Angle Spring Constant Cutoff is a minimum value for bond/angle constants that you wish to scale. If you have a value of 1.5 here, constants with a value below1.5 won't be modified. Constants above will be multiplied by the scaling factorgiven above.Output: The Output Parameter File is the name of the parameter file thatwill be created with the modified spring constant values.Residue-Based Coarse Graining Text InterfaceTo access the plugin via the text interface, the relevant commands for coarsegraining a system are: read_db dbfile -- Read a set of cg definitions from a specified database file apply_database molid outputfile revcgfile -- Applies the current cg database to molecule molid. The finished structure is output to the file outputfile, and data used for reversing the coarse graining is placed in revcgfile.It is also useful in some CG schemes to include water in the system as it is coarse-grained. To make sure waters are properly assigned to CG beads (if one uses a cgc entry such as the water entry below) they must have consecutive residue numbers, which can be assigned using the function prepare_water molid simple -- Waters in molid will be made part of one chain and consecutively numbered. If simple is not equal to 0, the numbering will be assigned such that blocks of waters that are close to each other will have consecutive resids.To reverse the coarse-graining procedure, one must first load the original molecule and the coarse-grained timestep that is to be reversed. The relevant commands are then:apply_reversal cgmolid revcgfile origmolid outputfile do_rotations-- Take the CG timestep in cgmolid, and apply the reversals read fromrevcgfile assuming that the initial structure is in origmolid.The modified coordinates are written to outputfile. Ifdo_rotations is non zero, attempts will be made to keep atoms withinter-bead bonds as close as possible to their original positions by applyingrotations. If 0, rotations will not be done. Note that you will almostcertainly want to perform some sort of annealing or refinement on the resultingstructure. 2b1af7f3a8
