OpenMM 7.4 / PyOpenMM 4.0 – Library for Molecular Modeling Simulation

OpenMM 7.4 / PyOpenMM 4.0

:: DESCRIPTION

OpenMM is a library which provides tools for modern molecular modeling simulation. As a library it can be hooked into any code, allowing that code to do molecular modeling with minimal extra coding.

PyOpenMM is a python API that wraps the OpenMM library.

Facio 22.1.1 – 3D-Graphics program for Molecular Modeling and Visualization

Facio 22.1.1

:: DESCRIPTION

Facio is an OpenGL-based 3D-graphics program for molecular modeling and visualization of quantum chemical calculations (GAMESS and Gaussian)

Since Facio internally uses PDB (Protein Data Bank) format, it can also display a 3D-structure of biological macromolecules, such as proteins and nucleic acid with emphasizing their secondary or quaternary structures.

Mc-Sym 3.3.2 – Molecular Modeling using Constraint Satisfaction

Mc-Sym 3.3.2

:: DESCRIPTION

Mc-Sym (Macromolecular Conformations by SYMbolic programming) is a software that builds RNA 3-D structures using coordinates and relations between residues extracted from X-ray crystallography and NMR found in the RCSB Protein Data Bank and the Rutgers Nucleic Acid Database and from theoretical models. Constraints can be applied to the building procedure to ensure that the generated models are valid. The RNA structures properties and constraints are entered in a script or interactively within the mcsym interpreter.

Gorgon 2.2.0 – Molecular Modeling system

Gorgon 2.2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

Gorgon is an interactive molecular modeling system specifically geared towards cryo-EM and other low resolution structures of macromolecular complexes. The long term goal of the gorgon project is to be able to address to every part of the molecular modeling pipeline starting from the initial volumetric reconstruction of the complex all the way to the final placement of each individual atom.

AmberFFC 1.3 – Convert Force Fields for use with Commercial Molecular Modeling Packages

AmberFFC 1.3

:: DESCRIPTION

AmberFFC creates the AMBER & GLYCAM FF for the Accelrys molecular mechanics modules, FDiscover and CDiscover by transforming the AMBER/GLYCAM topology database and FF parameter files to the Accelrys file format. Thus, the program is useful for any modeler who is interested in (i) using the AMBER & GLYCAM FF with the Accelrys software and (ii) comparing the results obtained with the AMBER and Accelrys modeling packages.
