I tried with genbox option with perticular concentration i.e. perticular
number of each component like guanidium ion thiocynate ion & water
But while doing PR(position restrain MD) it showing errors : constraints
errors in algorithm shake at step 0.
t=o.oo ps : water molecule starting at atom 3010 can not be settled. check
for bad contacts and/or reduce the time steps.
i reduced the time steps in pr.mdp from .002 to .001 ps file but again it
shows the same problem.i have seen the pdb files after genbox really some
close contacts between was there it means insertion of extra molecule by
gen box is not proper it leads to some bad contacts.
The real problem is that when performing simulation of peptide with
guanidium ion , CL- , water it is showing no problem because CL- is added
in genion steps. Only change in new system (guanidium ion, SCN- , water,
peptide) is of SCN-. Addition of SCN- in genbox step is creating problem.
Is any other method to perform simulation of peptide in solvent systrm
(guanidium ion, SCN-, water).
Please give me some insight to resolve this issue.
