Re: AMBER: How to extract energy of molecule from the system with explicit water molecules

do you mean just the internal energy, or also the interaction with
water? the latter is difficult in a periodic system. if you want just
the peptide energy, you can use ptraj to strip the water and then
make a prmtop of just the peptide without water. then you can
evaluate the energy of the peptide. if you want more specific suggestions
you'll need to make clear what you want- energy for a restart
file, or for all frames in the trajectory, energy with or without
interaction, and so on.
