[gmx-users] Generating topology file for a molecule (FNP) not in the gromacs library.

When actually building the topology I find it easiest to create the residues in the relevant .rtp and allow pdb2gmx to build the topology for you. However, all this does is correctly connect everything and put your parameters where they should be. All previous comments (in this thread and the hundreds of other threads on this topic) still apply about how to come up with the parameters... read the original papers and reproduce their methodology.
