No: generally you want antechamber to re-determine the atom types (using the
gaff force field), since we don't support the sybyl force field. Hence,
the only real information antehcamber will use from the mol2 file will be
atom names, bond connectivities, residue name, and coordinates.

..hope this helps...dac
