[gmx-users] Protein-ligand opls ff

I have some OPLS-AA ATP parameters that I made and tested ages ago, if you really want them. But Justin is correct, there are almost certainly better force fields to use with well validated ATP parameters and a better protein force field than OPLS-AA/L (e.g. variants of the CHARMM and AMBER force fields).

Is there a reason you want to use OPLS/AA? Most other force fields have widely
used ATP parameters built into the force field, requiring no work on your part.
Some ATP parameters may be published as part of OPLS/AA, but I'm not sure how
good they are. As to benzoic acid, that's a straightforward molecule to
parametrize by analogy. All force fields have aromatic rings and acid groups.
You just need to put them together.

Define "output" and its format. To do anything with GROMACS, though, you need a
GROMACS-formatted topology, which is usually the hardest part. GROMACS will
read in many different coordinate formats, so there's no real barrier there.
