Re: [AMBER] mismatch pdb files when created using ambpdb and savepdb

Hi Dac,

There is problem when pdb file is created using "ambpdb" command. The ATOM
numbers are correct but Water residues (WAT) are not numbered correctly.
In the test.pdb file after resid 9999, residue numbering starts again with
0, 1, 2......3216. This number does not match with topology file. When I
tried with other PDB file it shows the same thing. That is after resid
9999, renumbering starts again.

There is absolutely no problem with "savepdb". It matches with topology file.

Please try with the attached PDB file. First generate the .prmtop and
incrp and try to convert it using ambpdb. I tried with 2 - 3 different
protein PDB files. I got similar problem. I tried with a short peptide and
surprisingly there was no problem with that.

Thank you.

The pdb file created using "savepdb" gives correct number of atoms in
