The molecular modeling toolkit : A new approach to molecular simulations

Journal of Computational Chemistry 21 (2) 79-85

par Administrateur - publié le

Abstract :

The Molecular Modeling Toolkit is a library that implements common molecular simulation techniques, with an emphasis on biomolecular simulations. It uses modem software engineering techniques (object-oriented design, a high-level language) to overcome limitations associated with the large monolithic simulation programs that are commonly used for biomolecules. Its principal advantages are (1) easy extension and combination with other libraries due to modular library design ; (2) a single high-level general-purpose programming language (Python) is used for library implementation as well as for application scripts ; (3) use of documented and machine-independent formats for all data files ; and (4) interfaces to other simulation and visualization programs.
