RISM/3D-RISM

  • Level of openness 1 ★☆☆
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

This is a structure analysis program for solutes and solvents, based on the statistical mechanics theory of liquids. The program determines the solvent density distribution surrounding the solute, and calculates various physical values such as the solvation free energy, compressibility, and partial molar volume. The program implements a parallelized fast Fourier transform routine for large-scale parallel computing, and can analyze molecular functions such as the ligand binding affinity of proteins, that would be difficult using other methods.

EVO

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

An application for structure prediction based on the evolutionary algorithm. From an input of the atomic position in a unit cell and possible elements at each atomic position, this application predicts the stable structure and composition from the first-principles calculation and molecular dynamics in combination with the evolutionary algorithm. This application is written in Python, and uses Quantum ESPRESSO and GULP as an external program.

MODYLAS

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 1 ★☆☆

MODYLAS is a highly parallelized general-purpose molecular dynamics (MD) simulation program appropriate for very large physical, chemical, and biological systems. It is equipped most standard MD techniques including free energy calculations based on thermodynamic integration method. Long-range forces are evaluated rigorously by the fast multipole method (FMM) without using the fast Fourier transform (FFT) in order to realize excellent scalability. The program enables investigations of large-scale real systems such as viruses, liposomes, assemblies of proteins and micelles, and polymers. It works on ordinary linux machines, too.

REM

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 0 ☆☆☆

An application for adding a function of the replica exchange method to the existing applications for molecular dynamics simulation such as MODYLAS, AMBER, and CHARMM. Without changing original programs of molecular dynamics, the replica exchange method can be implemented easily. This application also shows high performance in massive parallel computing by the K-computer.

ArgusLab

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 0 ☆☆☆

An application for modeling and visualization of molecules for quantum chemical calculation. This application implements a construction of
molecular structures with classical molecular dynamics simulation and structure optimization by simple generic force fields, and a preparation of input files for applications of quantum chemical calculation such as Gaussian. A binary package for Windows XP is available, and informal packages for Windows 7, iPad, and Linux exist.
