Re: AMBER: charges in PBSA calculation

I am using Amber 9. Do I need to add ions to the charged ligand file? But in
that case, the number of atoms in the complex and the ligand will not match
and the pbsa calculation will stop. How do I perform pbsa calculations for
charges ligands?

Your help is appreciated.
