  Description     : Initial configurations for Molecular Dynamics Simulations by packing optimization

Packmol creates an initial point for molecular dynamics simulations by
packing molecules in defined regions of space. The packing guarantees
that short range repulsive interactions do not disrupt the

The great variety of types of spatial constraints that can be
attributed to the molecules, or atoms within the molecules, makes it
easy to create ordered systems, such as lamellar, spherical or tubular
lipid layers.

The user must provide only the coordinates of one molecule of each
type, the number of molecules of each type and the spatial constraints
that each type of molecule must satisfy.

The package is compatible with input files of PDB, TINKER, XYZ and
MOLDY formats.

See http://m3g.iqm.unicamp.br/packmol for more information.

which Packmol was useful:

This package complements existing molecular dynamics software such as
lammps, gromacs, cp2k and others, providing tools for filling a volume
with solvent molecules.

This area of application is more specialised and therefore the package
can be team-maintained under debichem rather than debian-science.
