The structures that I get back from Epik seem distorted. What can I do about this?
Epik does not always position added hydrogen atoms optimally, resulting in distorted bond angles and inappropriate dihedral angles involving hydrogen atoms. A workaround is to minimize the energy of the generated structures using a program such as MacroModel.
If Epik is used as part of a LigPrep run, the structures are minimized by default, so this problem should not arise.
