Technically, it is of course possible. However, ESPResso does not have built in force fields, so setting them up is pretty tedious. Furthermore, ESPResSo might get into trouble when you need to define too many different types of particles and their interactions. All-atom simulations usually have a great deal more particle types than our top-down particle types, so this might cause a problem.Olaf2013/11/21 Jakub Krajniak <address@hidden>

>I rather want to experiment with the AdResS for some other setup so Espresso ismore flexible than Gromacs.One more question, related to the Espresso itself. I saw somewhere the comment thatEspresso is not design to run the all-atom md simulation. In what sense is that? Causeas I briefly go through the documentation, it seems that technically it is possible to createall-atom setup with defined desired interaction and run it.
