Calculate Binding Energy

Upload Files, Adjust Parameters and Submit Job

Before submitting a job, prepare three PQR files for the biomolecule complex and its two components (component A and component B). This can be done by first downloading PDB files of the biomolecules from the RCSB Protein Data Bank, and then converting them to PQR files by using PDB2PQR. After preparing the PQR files:

  1. Upload the PQR files for the complex, component A, and component B separately.
  2. Adjust basic parameters, or use default parameter values.
  3. (Optional) Adjust additional parameters (located in tabs).
  4. Submit the job by clicking the "Run SMPBS" button.
