Software Package for Multiscale Coarse-Grained Modeling

October 2018: New: Magic v3 relesased!

MagiC is a software package designed to perform systematic coarse-graining of molecular models for multiscale simulations. MagiC takes input from atomistic trajectories computed by all-atom molecular dynamics program (such as GROMACS or MDynaMix), creates a coarse-grained trajectory according to a specified mapping scheme, computes radial distribution functions and distributions of bond lengths and angles between the coarse-grained sites, and finally uses iterative Boltzmann Inversion or Inverse Monte Carlo method to compute effective potentials for the coarse-grained model. Such potentials can be then further used for a large scale simulation.

The theory and basic principles behind MagiC are described in this paper:
