Re: OPLS Lipid topology/potenital for NAMD

A log of people are probably interested in using OPLS protein force fields
with a suitable set of lipid parameters, so it will be a fruitful exercise
if you succeed. Have you asked the experts at the charmm forum about the
possible problems with parameterizing ? They might know of some existing
issues about mixing OPLS charges with CHARMM dihedrals and such.

Good luck !
