Hi James, typical protocols to do steered MD on a protein (where the list
of atoms involved doesn't change) involve the old SMD code, tclForces or
Again, I would double check the literature about this point. Lipid
molecules fully relax only on a timescale of tens of ns. If you want to
get thermodynamic quantities, you will probably need more 100 ns.
