[gmx-users] Doubt about HSD and HSE conformation on Charmm27

Firstly, thanks for your help Justin.
You have already told me about the use of -ighn option. However, I've looked
for an automatic way which managed the HIS protonation states.
Unfortunatelly, I understood wrong about this algorithm. I believed that the
difference about HSD and HSE was the names of atom.
Now, I use -ighn option in my algorithm. It is working fine until now.
This mess is because this structure is one of initial individuals. I'm
working with an evolutionary algorithm. The final output is better. I have
been trying to improve it.
Thanks in advance,
