This is a good idea. I am in the St. Louis area. We are strugelling also with it. A lot of it has to do with the documentation. And the examples. I have gotten it to work but basicly one needs to change every thing from the directions. atm files are actually pdb so get your structure from the pdb blast and then change the file to a .atm. Then creat your own atom directory. Any how once we figured that out it has gotten a lot easyer. But I think we could get a hold of some one to meet at University of Ill. In Champaign Urbana. Its a good half way point. between Chicago and STL. And a lot of people there would use it too. And at SIUE carbon dale. We already work with U of Ill. here at the danforth center. And Wash U. Heck people at Monsanto has asked me about this. There is a lot of people that could benefit from a get together. then we can do a better documentatin.
I am a new user in East Lansing at Michigan State and would also be interested in meeting with other new users to sort through some of this. UIUC would be a fine place for me to meet as well. Please keep me updated. Thanks.
