You can easily check (using a text editor) which atoms make_ndx is choosing. In
theory, your approach is correct and very straightforward. Can you please provide?
1. Your exact make_ndx command
2. A few lines from residue 10DA of whatever coordinate file you're using
3. The index group produced from residue 10
Did you renumber the file at any point, for instance, with pdb2gmx? That is,
whatever started out as residue 10 may not still be numbered as such in the
topology and any resulting coordinate files produced from the simulation.
Without knowing exactly what you're using as make_ndx input, it's hard to track
down what's going on.
