Why are the lipids distributed asymmetrically?

What cutoff are you using on the InflateGRO command line? If you are using the
default of 14, the particles might be outside of the cutoff, but due to the
implied larger size of the coarse particles, the interactions may still be
significant at this distance. Try a larger cutoff.

Does the protein minimize by itself? What about the lipids? Where are the
LINCS warnings originating? That's the first place to look for the cause of the
