You could use all the machinery for constructing the protein etc.  
exactly as in the examples for C-alpha normal mode analysis. You  
could also use the Langevin integrator that comes as an example with  

What you would have to add is the Go-type potential. I have never  
used such potentials, so I do not know how one would best go about  
implementing them.

Good luck,
