Why won't your approach work? The answer to this question is always the same: a
modified residue in a biopolymer requires a modified .rtp entry. The details of
how that works depends on the force field, but the net effect is the same. For
linking proteins, that's what specbond.dat is for. The parametrization details
depend on the kind of linkage. Isopeptides, disulfides, etc. are already
handled easily. Other things require more effort.

>>> I am about to setup a protein ligand complex in which the the amino acid is covalently bound to the ligand. What I was about to do is to build an artificial amino acid (in this case serine) with the ligand attached to it an derive partial charges using antechamber or the RED server. Then while preparing the force field in GROMACS I would treat the serine was a new residue type with the new FF information. Is the a good practice?
