Hello Maria,

although I can't provide you with a textbook describing the theory of the
various charge systems, I have learned that you should use Gasteiger.
However, if I recall properly, Vina will calculate and attribute charges to
atoms on its own regardless of the information from the .pdbqt file in
order to reduce / minimize errors introduced by the operator.

Best regards,
João Serina
