I started with a pdb file of the protein, 5000 residues, no solvent,
crystallographic structure.

Generated the .gro file, opting for the AMBER99SB force field (option 5):

gmx pdb2gmx -f YYY.pdb -o YYY_GROMACS.gro -water tip3p -ignh (opted
for ignh as I was having trouble with differences in nomemclature)

defined box:

gmx editconf -f YYY_GROMACS.gro -o YYY_newbox.gro -c -d 1.2 -bt dodechaedron

solvation:

gmx solvate -cp YYY_GROMACS_newbox.gro -cs spc216.gro -o
YYY_GROMACS_newboxsolv.gro -p topol.top

add ions:

gmx grompp -f ions.mdp -c YYY_newboxsolv.gro -p topol.top -o ions.tpr

gmx genion -s ions.tpr -o YYY_newboxsolv_ions.gro -p topol.top -pname
NA -np 76 (the charge was -76)  (chose group 13 like the tutorial,
SOL)


at this point, my topol is:
[ molecules ]
; Compound        #mols
Protein_chain_X     1
SOL         766582
NA               76

and from this point i went on with minimization and so on.
