Tutorials

We show basic, intermediate, and advanced tutorials for GENESIS. Before starting the tutorials, the users are recommended to get VMD to visualize the obtained MD trajectories, and also gnuplot to plot the data. We will use various linux commands such as grepcutpastetailsed, and tee. If you do not know their basic usage, learn them in advance. The GENESIS beginners may first start the basic tutorial, which can be mainly performed on a few CPU cores. However, most tutorials at the intermediate and advanced levels require parallel computation with many cores, because their calculations are heavy. The tutorials are mainly composed of three levels according to the required computational resource.

  • : Suitable for laptop or small desktop machine (atdyn, less than 4 CPU cores)
  • : Suitable for workstation or GPU machine (spdyn, ~16 CPU cores)
  • : Suitable for cluster machine or super-computer (spdyn, more than 64 CPU cores)
