You will need to provide detailed information about what you did. For
example, how did you create the library file for the inhibitor? How are you
deciding whether the "connectivity" is present or absent?, etc.

Generally, make sure that you can minimize the inhibitor all by itself first.
But without more information about what you actualy did (you can just say
"generated during LEaP") no one will really be able to help.
