Dear Amber users,

  I'm a doctoral student in NJU,and now doing a project on binding free energy calculations for drug-protein interaction.
  I read your paper

J. Wang, P. Morin, W. Wang & P.A. Kollman. Use of MM-PBSA in Reproducing the
Binding Free Energies to HIV-1 RT of TIBO Derivatives and Predicting the Binding Mode
to HIV-1 RT of Efavirenz by Docking and MM-PBSA. J. Am. Chem. Soc.
123, 5221-5230 (2001).

I have several questions:
In equation

Now I can use Amber to solve deltaE(electrostatic),deltaE(vdW).
How do you use the NMODE to get the deltaS,and MM-PBSA to get the deltadeltaG(PB) with deltadeltaG(SA)?

Thanks a lot!
