run/ Directory to run the electron transfer simulation.
doc/ This documentation and README file for Step-wise procedure need to be followed for Electron Transfer Rate Calculations.
Description of the input

The setup of the simulation is similar to an association rate calculation. In the input file we must declare a ReactionCriteria and RateCalculation group, as for association rate. In the calculation, it is the probability of electron transfer, dependent of the distance between the donor and acceptor pairs between the solutes, which is computed.

We used the coupling parameters given by the PATHWAYS software (A plugin for VMD).

The algorithm has been validated when using all 3 interactions: This example contains a short adaption (50 trajectories) of a run performed for the analysis described in Gabdoulline RR and Wade RC, J. Am. Chem. Soc. (wild type, 100mM ionic strength) The data are post processed with the bootstrap method to evaluate the confidence interval
Running example

Assure you have compiled all the executables and tools in sda_flex/bin/ first or refer to the compilation section.

Then execute the script in the run/ directory
cd run/

You can compare the results with the ones provided in the run_hits/ direcotry
