Hi,

I wouldn't do cherry-picking. I am just confused how I can trust the data
if the RMSD goes crazy in that range? Also based on the command I used I
think the PBC has been taken care of, please correct me if I am wrong :)

And It would be very interesting, if the RMSF of wild type started
fluctuating after 70 ns for real.

Also, yes you are right, this is a single run and I will need to replicate
the simulation for several times. At the mean time I  would really like to
learn how I can make a judgement which ranges of data I could use for the
analysis :)

Thank you,

MD
