ABSTRACT Molecular modeling and simulations are invaluable tools for polymer science and engineering, which predict physicochemical properties of polymers and provide molecular-level insight into the underlying mechanisms. However, building realistic polymer systems is challenging and requires considerable experience because of great variations in structures as well as length and time scales. This work describes Polymer Builder in CHARMM-GUI (http://www.charmm-gui.org/input/polymer), a web-based infrastructure that provides a generalized and automated process to build a relaxed polymer system. Polymer Builder not only provides versatile modeling methods to build complex polymer structures, but also generates realistic polymer melt and solution systems through the built-in coarse-grained model and all-atom replacement. The coarse-grained model parametrization is generalized and extensively validated with various experimental data and all-atom simulations. In addition, the capability of Polymer Builder for generating relaxed polymer systems is demonstrated by density calculations of 34 homopolymer melt systems, characteristic ratio calculations of 170 homopolymer melt systems, a morphology diagram of poly(styrene-b-methyl methacrylate) block copolymers, and self-assembly behavior of amphiphilic poly(ethylene oxide-b-ethylethane) block copolymers in water. We hope that Polymer Builder is useful to carry out innovative and novel polymer modeling and simulation research to acquire insight into structures, dynamics, and underlying mechanisms of complex polymer-containing systems.
