Thank you Justin for your reply.
There is another question regarding MMPBSA energy calculations. I have
calculated the MMPBSA energy of 8 potential protein+drug complex.
Simulation time was 50 ns. One of the protein drug complex gives the
positive binding energy. Does the periodic boundary conditions like whole
and nojump effect the binding energy.
