I am studying protein in water. In the dodecahedron box I would have 80K
water molecules which on my GPU machine give 6 ns/day. If I place my
protein to the triclinic box I would get 20K atoms getting 50 ns/day. Thats
a significant improvement. My protein in 15 nm long and 4 nm width so it is
likely it can rotate and interact with its periodic image. I wish to
prevent the rotational movements. Would you suggest something?
