Re: [AMBER] Question about Parmbsc1 Force Field

All files needed to use the parmbsc1 force field are included in the
newest version (17) of the Amber Tools ... explanations for the files
are in the Amber 17 manual.
Ion parameters are not part of the parmbsc1 which is a pure DNA force
field .... Different ion parameters available are also very well
presented in the Amber 17 manual.

I hope this helps
