First of all thanks for your reply.
It worked, but i’m getting weird results.
When i measured the RDF between:
Protein (COM) - Glycerol (the entire molecule) i got a huge pick at 0.022 nm, which doesn’t make any sense (because i presumed that at this distance there must be a steric effect) am i right? Because this is my first time considering the center of mass of a molecule, so i don’t really know which distances are ‘normal’ are which are not considering one group as a COM of the protein.
i used the next command:
> g_rdf -f npt_production.xtc -com -s npt_production.tpr-o TEST-glycerol.xvg
group 1: Protein
group 2: GOL (glycerol molecules)
Thanks again for your valuable help,
