Dear NAMD Users,

I want to do IMD using VMD, NAMD, VRPN Server. I have gone through the online example at http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/imd/tutorial/

It is working fine. The problem is that it required four files


I want to do simulation for iperdion which is a small molecule and not protein.

I have gone through NAMD User guide. I have .pdb file for my molecule from InsightII. As shown in User Guide, I think that I can write .conf file. But the problem is how to get .psf and .params files for my molecule?

I have done search at google and found following useful links for CHARMm (http://persweb.wabash.edu/facstaff/fellers/tutorial/charmm/parmfile.html ) and X-Plor (http://atb.slac.stanford.edu/xplor/manual/htmlman.html ). But I am not able to use these information to create .psf and .params files.

Is there any other way to do IMD ?

Thank You,

Yours truly,
Harit Jani.
