TS2CG: Triangulated Surfaces to Coarse Grain

TS2CG is an algorithm to backmap a triangulated surface to a corresponding coarse-grained model.

Backward is a tool to convert a coarse-grained system to united-atom or all-atom resolution. The mapping is done using a library of mapping definitions, which encode the geometric reconstruction.

In most cases, the backmapping is performed using the wrapper, which calls and subsequently relaxes the resulting structure through energy minimization and molecular dynamics based relaxation.

The scripts and mapping definitions for gromacs versions 4 and 5-bead oleoyl lipid chains are combined into a single zip file, which can be downloaded here.

The script for version 5 can be downloaded here.

When your system has lipids, we recommend downloading the mapping files for them from the lipidome library.

The script for gromacs versions 5 and higher and the mapping files for the amino acid residues and nucleobases are combined into a single zip file, which can be downloaded here.
