ERmod

  • Level of openness 3 ★★★
  • Document quality 2 ★★☆

ERmod is software for calculating the free energy in soft, molecular aggregate. This program rapidly and accurately calculates the free energy of binding of a molecule in the aggregate through combination of the molecular dynamics simulation and the energy-representation theory of solvation. The solubility of a molecule can be determined with ERmod in arbitrary solvent including supercritical fluid and ionic liquid. Assessment is also possible for the binding strength and site of a molecule in micelle, lipid membrane or protein.

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.
