I also looking for the possibility to calculate free energy of ligand
binding using MMPBSA.py script and NAMD trajectory.
As I know in NAMD I can make parametrization of my system using amber (not
charmm) force field. So I need (i) proper way to parametrize ligand in
amber (ii) convert dcd to amber-like trajectory
Thanks for help
