Subject: Re: vmd-l: SBCG of molecules

I can just add -- SBCG is a completely different paradigm from the way MARTINI works, so the question is not really applicable. Please see the SBCG paper for how this method works. RBCG can be used with current MARTINI versions or any MARTINI-like model by making different .cgc files.

I believe that both the residue- and shape-based coarse graining tools

Whatever capabilities they may have with regard to MARTINI specifically
are likely now out of date. Those two tools have not been revised in
many years. They were developed and contributed by students and have
been "as-is" since then.

Best regards,
