Whether the results compare agree with experimental data is irrelevant
to the correctness of the implementation -- that has to do with the
validity of AMBER99sb to begin with. The only question is, do GROMACS
and AMBER give the same energies for the same configurations?
I actually do not know the answer, and would be interested to hear if
it's been tested. http://ffamber.cnsm.csulb.edu/ does not appear to
have the very comprehensive tests that appear for earlier models at
the current time. I SUSPECT there should not be a problem, since
AMBER99sb just changed a couple of torsions, so errors are unlikely
(though in theory possible).
