-To perform thermodynamic integration one has to run MD for different values of the distance between atoms 11 and 91, in each run it will be constrained. In the original file ''​md_std.inp'' ​it is set to $14.37$ Å as is in the ''​deca_ala.pdb''​ file. +Here you are asked to run several ​MD simulations ​for different values of the distance between atoms 11 and 91, in each run it will be constrained. In the original file ''​md_std.inp'' ​the distance ​is set to $14.37$ Å as is in the ''​deca_ala.pdb''​ file. This is the first step to carry out the termodynamic integration,​ as described in the equation above.
  
-We have made this process automatic. To run TI for different values of the constraint, execute ​the script ''​run_ti_jobs.sh'' ​that you find inside the compressed file ''​deca_ala.tar.gz''​. Take a look at the script and familiarize yourself with it. At which values are we constraining the distances between the carbon atoms? In this case we are performing 5 different simulations,​ each with a different value of the constraint. ​Feel free to use a larger or smaller number of constraints and to increase or reduce the upper and/or lower bound.+We have made the script ''​run_ti_jobs.sh'' ​to run these simulations,​ which you can find inside the compressed file ''​deca_ala.tar.gz''​. Take a look at the script and familiarize yourself with it. At which values are we constraining the distances between the carbon atoms? In this case we are performing 5 different simulations,​ each with a different value of the constraint. ​You can edit this script ​to use a larger or smaller number of constraints and to increase or reduce the upper and/or lower bound of integrationCan you guess where in the script we are specifying the values of the constraints?​
