Yes, the problem is with the blank line at the end of atomtypes.atp. Now
its working fine. I have added the missing dihedral types from other
I have compared the cholesterol CHARMM parameters that are converted to
gromacs format and original parameters from
"toppar_all36_lipid_cholesterol.str" file available in CHARMM website. I
found some variations in the atom types.
For eg., The atom type of C3 atom from sterol ring in cholesterol is CTL1
in CHARMM whereas it is CG311 in charmm36-Nov2014.ff.
