The setup of the simulation is similar to an association rate calculation. In the input file we must declare a
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:
- Electrostatic desolvation
- Non-polar desolvation
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
You can compare the results with the ones provided in the run_hits/ direcotry
