gmx extract-cluster can be used to extract trajectory frames that correspond to clusters obtained from running gmx cluster with the -clndx option. The module supports writing all GROMACS supported trajectory file formats.

Included is also a selection of possible options to change additional information.

It is possible to write only a selection of atoms to the output trajectory files for each cluster.


Options to specify input files:

-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>] (traj.xtc) (Optional)

Input trajectory or single configuration: xtc trr cpt gro g96 pdb tng

-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>] (topol.tpr) (Optional)

Input structure: tpr gro g96 pdb brk ent

-n [<.ndx>] (index.ndx) (Optional)

Extra index groups

-clusters [<.ndx>] (cluster.ndx)

Name of index file containing frame indices for each cluster, obtained from gmx cluster -clndx.

Options to specify output files:

-o [<.xtc/.trr/...>] (trajout.xtc)

Prefix for the name of the trajectory file written for each cluster.: xtc trr cpt gro g96 pdb tng

Other options:

-b <time> (0)

First frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-e <time> (0)

Last frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-dt <time> (0)

Only use frame if t MOD dt == first time (ps)

-tu <enum> (ps)

Unit for time values: fs, ps, ns, us, ms, s

-fgroup <selection>

Atoms stored in the trajectory file (if not set, assume first N atoms)

-xvg <enum> (xmgrace)

Plot formatting: xmgrace, xmgr, none

-[no]rmpbc (yes)

Make molecules whole for each frame

-[no]pbc (yes)

Use periodic boundary conditions for distance calculation

-sf <file>

Provide selections from files

-selrpos <enum> (atom)

Selection reference positions: atom, res_com, res_cog, mol_com, mol_cog, whole_res_com, whole_res_cog, whole_mol_com, whole_mol_cog, part_res_com, part_res_cog, part_mol_com, part_mol_cog, dyn_res_com, dyn_res_cog, dyn_mol_com, dyn_mol_cog

-select <selection>

Selection of atoms to write to the file

-vel <enum> (preserved-if-present)

Save velocities from frame if possible: preserved-if-present, always, never

-force <enum> (preserved-if-present)

Save forces from frame if possible: preserved-if-present, always, never

-atoms <enum> (preserved-if-present)

Decide on providing new atom information from topology or using current frame atom information: preserved-if-present, always-from-structure, never, always

-precision <int> (3)

Set output precision to custom value

-starttime <time> (0)

Change start time for first frame

-timestep <time> (0)

Change time between different frames

-box <vector>

New diagonal box vector for output frame
