AMBER: How do I make and enter new ff parameters into AMBER

Date: Fri, 02 Feb 2007 19:35:20 GMT


     I need to generate and enter into AMBER new Fe parameters for heme iron. I have the paper by J <cNamara et al (J Comp Chem 27:1307 2006) in which he lists bond lengths, etc. for heme iron models. I have never done thus type of work before, and if I don't do it, I will probably lose my funding. So, if anyone could take me step-by=step through generating force field parameters, tell me exactly what kind of data I need, and how to change the parameter code in AMBER, I would be extremely grateful. I have tried to read up on how to do this through papers and web sites, but a.) I am EXTREMELY visually impaired and b.) no one ever tells the whole story.


Thank-you very much
