htmd.membranebuilder.build_membrane.buildMembrane(xysize, ratioupper, ratiolower, waterbuff=20, minimplatform='CPU', equilibrate=False, equilplatform='CUDA', outdir=None, lipidf=None, ff=None, topo=None, param=None, build=False)#

Construct a membrane containing arbitrary lipids and ratios of them.

  • xysize (list) – A list containing the size in x and y dimensions of the membrane in Angstroms

  • ratioupper (dict) – A dict with keys the molecule names and the ratio of that molecule for the upper layer

  • ratiolower (dict) – Same as ratioupper but for the lower layer

  • waterbuff (float) – The z-dimension size of the water box above and below the membrane

  • minimplatform (str) – The platform on which to run the minimization (‘CUDA’ or ‘CPU’)

  • equilibrate (bool) – If True it equilibrates the membrane

  • equilplatform (str) – The platform on which to run the equilibration (‘CUDA’ or ‘CPU’)

  • outdir (str) – A folder in which to store the psf and pdb files

  • lipidf (str) – The path to the folder containing the single-lipid PDB structures as well as the lipid DB file

  • ff (list[str]) – AMBER forcefield files for lipids

  • topo (list[str]) – AMBER topologies for lipids

  • param (list[str]) – AMBER parameters for lipids

  • build (bool) – Build system with teLeap. Disable if you want to build the system yourself.


mol – The resulting membrane including surrounding waters
