Example of a general input parameter files for Gromacs 5. For comparison of the different .mdp options see:

Based on the extensive testing, we recommend the new-rf.mdp parameters for most cases. However not all systems have been tested and we recommend you do your own tests. In addition, for consistency within a project the same .mdp options should always be used.
