Thank you Jerome for your prompt response. If you could further answer this question, I will greatly appreciate it. So at FEP lambda 0.0625 to 0.125, if I have 0,0 for alchVdwLambdaEnd, alchElecLambdaStart, respectively, do I have the geometry of NADH and ADP present or do I have the geometry of the intermediate at 0.0625 to 0.125?

Thanks!

Dear Omneya,

Your simulation parameters seem correct to me, as does your understanding of the alchemical process in this implementation.

Best,

Jerome

Hello NAMD staff,

I am trying to properly implement the dual topology paradigm in Free Energy Perturbation technique for a mutation of NADH to ADP. I want to calculate two things: 1) the van der Waals free energy of NADH changing to ADP and 2) the electrostatics of NADH changing to ADP. Thus, I should have values for dGvdw and dGelec from two separate simulations. However, after reading over the documentation (http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/namd/2.7/ug/node53.html

However, in contrast to my understanding of the above documuntation and according to this very general response (http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/namd/mailing_list/namd-l.2010-2011/1722.html
