[gmx-users] Do I need to repeat my MD simulation ?

Well, 5 ns is not a long time in the life of a protein-peptide complex.
I would start several (5-10?) runs with different (random) starting
impulse to get more reliable data.
If the conformational change is connected to crossing a significant
energy barrier, it will be a rare event... which means you have to
sample longer in each run to have the chance to see it again.
You might use implicit solvent to see more of conformational space in
shorther time (possibly with somewhat elevated temperature)... also see
Good luck and gongzuo yukuai,
