<< Setting the simulation time parameters >>

Dear all,

I am starting to work with NAMD to study small molecules interacting with

Using VMD to set-up the simulation, I got the default parameters below.

As the timestep is the default value, 1fs, the simulation runs for 10ps.

My doubt is: which are the recommended values for running a simulation, for
50ns for example, in order to do a quality RMSD, RMSF, etc. analysis?

*# outputset output sim_1UNQ+Lig9369outputname

*# Multiple timesteppingfirsttimestep 0timestep
