MAZE is a code that implements enhanced sampling methods for sampling the reaction pathways of ligand unbinding. It is made as a module for PLUMED2, an engine for free energy calculations of atomistic systems and enhanced sampling.

Download and Install

You need to download the MAZE repository and enable the MAZE module by adding the --enable-modules=maze to the PLUMED configure command. You can follow the instructions given here.

For example:

> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-modules=maze
> make -j 4
> make install

Author

The MAZE module is developed and maintained by Jakub Rydzewski (Nicolaus Copernicus University), jr@fizyka.umk.pl.
