[Chimera-users] chimera minimize script

Hi Tatsiana,
	Residue 33 in chain K (an ASN) in your structure is missing the side chain.  Since the first thing you do in your script is add hydrogens, Chimera adds two hydrogens to the carbon alpha of that residue.  Since those hydrogens have no corresponding molecular mechanics parameters in the Amber database, the minimization didn’t work.
	You should not addh/addcharge in your script and instead run DockPrep.  See this dock-fans posting for how to do that:   [Dock-fans] dock prep in batch mode? <http://mailman.docking.org/pipermail/dock-fans/2007-May/001043.html>  That posting talks about adding keyword arguments you want to the prep() call.  If you want to use Gasteiger charges, add “method=‘gasteiger’” to the call.
