If you want to do the calculation not on the entire system but a small selection of atoms - look at ATOMSELECT to make the selection and use NAMDENERGY to calculate the energy of your system.   Hope this helps. -- Best,/A Disclaimer: This E-mail represents the views of its author only and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Faculty of Science (SCI).
