  <dc:description>A POPC bilayer consisting of 200 lipids (100 per leaflet) is simulated in the presence of 0% (0 molecules), 10 % (22 molecules), 20 % (50 molecules), or 30 % (86 molecules) of cholesterol. The Charmm36 model [1] is employed for lipids and the Charmm-compatible variant of the tip3p model for water.

The Charmm36 force field parameters were obtained from CHARMM-GUI [2] at


This is a correction to an earlier dataset simulated with some missing dihedrals, see: DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.61649


The files are in GROMACS format. Trajectory (.xtc) is 100 ns long with data saved every 100 ps. Additionally, the initial structure (.gro), topology (.top), index file (.ndx), simulation paremeter file (.mdp), binary run input file for GROMACS v. 5.0–&gt; (.tpr) and the energy output file (.edr) are provided. 

UPDATE: Longer 500 ns trajectories are updated together with the checkpoint files.
