Re: Can I do ¡°accelerated molecular dynamics¡±in NAMD?

As far as I know, currently there is not any "official" implementation
of the accelerated MD in NAMD. However, you might contact some of the
people who have been working on this area and ask if they've done
something using NAMD. For instance, you could contact Donald Hamelberg
@ McCammon's group. He's been working basically with AMBER, but he
might have a code for NAMD. Michele Parrinello and co-workers are
developing the "metadynamics" technique, that can also be used to
explore rough energy landscapes (I've learned that some people have
successfully implemented metadynamics on NAMD, although only a few
collective variables are available in such implementation).

Sorry if the answer is limited, but that's the only thing I can think of :).

Good luck!
