Hi Mark,

Thanks for reply.

The problem is that I have never found in the papers reasoning behind the
the lower than 300K temperatures.
Moreover, authors were interested in properties in 300K or above.
I was wondering if this is not based on experience that REMD implemented in
gromacs works better when you also include lower temperature.?
