[gmx-users] Self made GDP topology file

Hi  Bert,

     I tried the 'raw' PRODRG topology, it deformed. So I turned to modify the topology myself.
     My college once met the similar problem about ATP. He first uses the PRODRG topology but failed in the EM process. However he is lucky because later he find there is ATP in GMX's rtp file. And he used the output topology of ATP by pdb2gmx.

BTW: would you please to suggest some basic references of Essential Dynamics for me, because I want to simulate a protein with allosteric change between 2 domains.
