Hello VMD users,

I am working on Molecular Dynamics simulations. I have a file sample.gro that has a box consisting of DNA molecule+water molecules in my system. I have to choose all the water molecules that are close to the dna (with some cut off distance). Is there a way that VMD selection can handle it?

Request you to guide me. Thanks for your time.

With Regards,
