Dear users,

I would like to introduce chirality inversions (i.e. L- to D- amino acid
mutation) into a protein. Does anyone have any recommendation on how to do

So far, I attempted using the following instructions

However, the resultant non-natural amino acid *DAL* is not recognized by
vmd when I load the topology file

I would be very grateful for suggestions

Many thanks in advance
