[gmx-users] grompp g96angle types error

The problem seems to be between 3 S of CYS residues. I only use the 20 usual residues and with no modifications.

Where is the ffbonded.itp file?

Thank you,

The error message indicates that angle parameters do not exist in the chosen 
force field for a certain sequence of atoms.  This would be highly unusual for a 
standard protein.  Are you using any custom residues?  The error message 
indicates the line in the .top that is causing the problem.  Look it up, find 
which atoms it corresponds to, and check ffbonded.itp to verify that suitable 
parameters are indeed not present.  If you're using some kind of custom residue 
or nonstandard composition of atoms, then you'll likely have to parameterize the 
missing term(s) yourself.
