Re: Custom CHARMM forcefield usage problem

I think I have solved the problem.

The PSFGEN utility in VMD apparently failed to process the
toppar_all27_lipid_cholesterol.str correctly.

After recreating the PSF/PDB files within the Charmm program and
taking care to write an xplor PSF file everything appears to be in
order.

Best regards,
