myPresto provides both the Structure-Based Drug Development and the Ligand-Based Drug Development environments. The users can perform from hit screening to lead-generation in one program suit, since this suit provides from compound database for screening to MD simulation for compound detail validation. myPresto has been developed and opened since 2000, and it will be available to the future.

MPI/MPICH is needed for parallelized version of molecular dynamics (cosgene-MPI, psygene).
CUDA is needed for molecular dynamics simulation on GPUs (psygene-G/omeggagene).

The following commercial software supports GUI operation of myPresto on Linux/Windows/Mac.
