REACH ( R ealistic E xtension A lgorithm via C ovariance H essian) is a program package for residue-scale coarse-grained biomolecular simulation. The program calculates the force constants of a residue-scale elastic network model in single-domain proteins using the variance–covariance matrix obtained from atomistic molecular dynamics simulation. Secondary-structure dependence of the force constants is integrated. The method involves self-consistent, direct mapping of atomistic simulation results onto a coarse-grained force field in an efficient automated procedure without requiring iterative fits and avoiding system dependence.
