VMD psfgen Plugin, Version 1.6The 'psfgen' plugin is a structure building tool consisting of a library of portable structure and file manipulation routines that implement Tcl interface, callable from within VMD.
File FormatsThe 'psfgen' plugin reads standard PDB files, Charmm topology files, and PSF files in X-PLOR/NAMD format. Psfgen will accept PSF files using the Charmm CMAP cross-term map force field extension. Psfgen does not currently support Charmm PSF files using the Charmm 'EXT' expanded format, but will updated soon.
