[gmx-users] number of coordinates in coordinate file does not match topology

Gromacs is telling you what to do.Make a new top file

I do not think you can start a pdb from other than position 1 and the top must match exactly. it is probably more straightforward to  delete the chain and save the pdb. Use pdb2gmx to recreate the top.  

good luck

It has two chains and I need only chain A. when I delete chain B in CHIMERA and try to run the simulation, it stops at the gmx_mpi grompp -f ions.mdp -c solve.pdb -p topol.top -o ions.tpr step with the error of number of coordinates in the solve.pdb (143982) does not match the topol.top (143983). I checked the .pdb file and it starts from residue 13. Do I get the error because of that residues not being sorted from 1, since I use the same method for the sorted files and they run without errors.Thank you
