Re: regarding implicit solvent models

At present there is unfortunately not an implicit solvent model implemented in NAMD. As indicated on the list, there was some earlier work involving APBS. If you are interested in that, David Tannor in our group may be able to point you in the right direction. Realizing their importance to some specific methods like constant-pH simulations, there is an effort to include one in a future release; however there will unfortunately not be one ready for the upcoming 2.7 release.
