I've had good results using the GLYCAM amber type parameters for
sugars (and are available at which can be run without
incident in NAMD. I believe the most recent versions of John Brady's
CHARMM parameters for sugars are from Naidoo and Kuttel and are
available here
( One apparent
disadvantage of the Kutel parameters appears to be that they didn't
parameterize as many different types of sugars.
