DLPGEN natively makes input files for DL_POLY and GROMACS programs from *PDB, *xyz, Z-matrix and COR files. Furthermore, by using ForConX, it is also possible to build input files for CHARMM, AMBER and LAMMPS. The initial simulation box can be prepared using the program, which can produce regular crystalline structures or expanded boxes. To create crystal structures, data from single crystal X-ray results (i.e. unit cell parameters, symmetry operations and reduced coordinates) are required. For this purpose, the program reads COORD files, that can be retrieved from the Cambridge Structural Database, or alternatively, can be manually build using any other data source (e.g. CIF files). In adition, PACKMOL can also be automatically called from the DLPGEN to create the initial simulation boxes.

The version currently available is working, however it is not free from bugs. Thus any problem or questions do not hesitate to contact me.
