This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


We investigate the robustness of our ensemble molecular dynamics binding free energy protocols, known as ESMACS, to different choices of forcefield, starting structure and analysis. ESMACS is based on MMPBSA and we examinge the influence of multiple trajectories, explicit water molecules and estimates of the entropic contribution to the binding free energy.
