Write Prmtop Write Prmtop icon

Write Prmtop writes Amber parameter/topology and coordinate files using AmberTools. Thanks to Wei Zhang (The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston) for implementing this tool. See also: AddH, Add Charge, Add Ions, Solvate

There are several ways to start Write Prmtop, a tool in the Amber category. A file-saving dialog will appear.

The Save model should be chosen from the pulldown list of molecule models.

The force field type can be any of the following (details):

AddH will be called if the model to save lacks hydrogens. Add Charge will be called as needed to assign charges consistent with the chosen force field type. Two files will be saved: Amber parameter/topology (.prmtop) and coordinate (.inpcrd).

See the AmberTools saveAmberParm documentation for further details.
