[gmx-users] Constraining starting configuration in Coarse-Grain Simulation

Thank you for your response. I did not have tabulated potentials for bonded
interactions. I had tabulated potentials only for non-bonded
interactions. I had set constraints to be all-angles in my mdp file. I will
try using "constraint" interaction explicitly in my topology instead of
converting bonds and angles into constraints via mdp directive.
