Thanks a lot dear Josh. I want to simulate a hyperbranched polymer and I
have some problem with charge assignment. which one do you recommend:
1) performing ab initio calculations to find atomic charges or
2) using the atomic charges near to my structure from CHARMM 36 topology
file (I am using this FF)?
