MD requires charges, but the only way to assign charges was to do QM, which is totally impractical for most materials problems. For proteins and DNA, one can limit the calculation to the monomers (or better trimers). Tony Rappe and I solved this problem in 1991. Saber Naserifar and I extended to polarization in 2017.
