Protein Data Bank (PDB)

A structure database for proteins and nuclear acids. Three-dimensional structure data of proteins and nuclear acids (atomic coordinates determined experimentally by X-ray crystal analysis, NMR, etc.) can be downloaded. The data reposited in PDB are in the public domain, and can be accessed by everyone freely.

AFLOWLIB

A results database of first-principle calculation for material science. This database provides numerical data of crystal structures, band structures, thermodynamic quantities, phase diagrams, magnetic moments, and so on. This site is maintained by a research group of Duke University, and in particular, has extensive data of Heusler alloys. In addition to a user interface based on web browsers, an http-based API is also provided to enable user-defined material screening. This database can be used without charge after registration.

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.

KOBEPACK

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

An open-source program package for numerical diagonalization based on the Lanczos method, specialized for spin chains with unit spin magnitude, S=1. This package, which uses another open-source program package, TITPACK, calculates eigenenergies and eigenvectors of ground states and low-lying excited states of spin chains with finite length. By the subspace partitioning method, both memory and cpu-time requirements are considerably reduced.

TINKER

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

An open-source application for molecular dynamics. This application can perform molecular dynamics simulation of biopolymers and solvents consisting of a number of molecules/atoms. It implements a number of force field sets and algorithms, and supports parallel computing based on OpenMP. Java graphical user interface (GUI) is also included.
