Best would be to use two separate parameter files for protein and membrane;
NAMD can refer to as many as you want. I believe the CHARMM distribution
already includes them individually.

Subject: namd-l: parameter file for DMPC lipid and protein system but with
Has anyone used the charmm36 lipid parameters to simluate a lipid system
containing a protein? In other words using a parameter file such as
par_all27_prot_lipid.inp but with with charmm36 lipid parameters. My
protein is not embedded in the membrane, but sits the within the solvent
pahse (TIP3P water) just above the polar headgroups.
I have not worked with membrane simulations or NAMD for several years, and
am not sure if it is simply a case of just replacing the charmm27 lipid
parameters in par_all27_prot_lipid.inp with the charmm36 lipid parameters.
