Hi there, as far as i know it (and correct me if i'm wrong) when calculating solvation energy i need to take into account two main factors: 1. electrostatic energy (from PB). 2. surface area term. how exactly do i calculate factor no. 2 using the APBS package? i can calculate surface area and weighted surface area using acc, but i don't know exactly what is this weighted surface area, and how it's calculated (refs are welcome). thanks, t.
