The fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method can efficiently do quantum-mechanical calculations of large molecular systems by splitting the whole system into small fragments. The FMO program is distributed within quantum-chemical program suite GAMESS-US. FMO can provide various information regarding the structure and function of biopolymers, such as the interaction between a protein and a ligand.
A GUI program for structure modeling of giant molecules. This application consists of two programs, “fumodel” and “fuplot”. The former supports preparation of input data for FMO in GAMESS, whereas the latter is software for making graphs from numerical results obtained by FMO.
PAICS is a program of quantum chemical calculation. In this program, fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method is adopted, by which large molecules including biomolecular systems can be treated with several quantum chemical approaches including HF and MP2 methods. At the same time, PaicsView has been developed, which is a supporting program for making input files and analyzing calculation results.
