Dear Colleagues,
I am trying to use tleap to solvate my peptide in DMSO. I edited leaprc
as indicated on page 29 of the AMBER 8 manual, and the following error
Loading parameters: /usr/local/amber8/dat/leap/parm/frcmod.dmso
Reading force field mod type file (frcmod)
solvateBox: Argument #2 is type String must be of type: [unit]
usage: solvateBox <solute> <solvent> <buffer> [iso] [closeness]
Checking Unit.
Building topology....etc...
I downloaded the frcmod_dmso file from the amber website-see attached.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
