I just wanted to check, does the insane.py tool only accept water or polarisable water as a solvent? I have a coarse-grained version of a peptide and I wish to solvate it in a box of MARTINI octane. If I can't do this using insane.py, do you have any suggestions as to how I could do it?

Best wishes,
Dhanushka Weerakoon

Hi Dhanushka,

Insane doesn't care :) There's a range of solvent models, and you can add more if you want. If you clone the github repo, you can add octane to the solvents list in insane/_data.py. Octane would simply be two beads, and you can take one of the two bead amino acids as a template. You can then install insane from your own repo using

python3 -m pip install -e .

or

python3 -m pip install --user -e .

Maybe a good idea to use a virtual environment for that.

Cheers,

Tsjerk
