[News] Stanford Releases Free Software (GPL) for Molecular Motions Simulation

Hash: SHA1

New Open-source Software Permits Faster Desktop Computer Simulations Of
Molecular Motion

,----[ Quote ]
| Whether vibrating in place or taking part in protein folding to ensure cells 
| function properly, molecules are never still. Simulating molecular motions 
| provides researchers with information critical to designing vaccines and 
| helps them decipher the bases of certain diseases, such as Alzheimer's and 
| Parkinson's...


Stanford goes fully molecular with OpenMM

,----[ Quote ]
| Said Vijay Pande, an associate professor of chemistry at 
| Stanford, "Simulations that used to take three years can now be completed in 
| a few days. With this first release of OpenMM, we focused on small molecular 
| systems simulated and saw speedups of 100 times faster than before."   



Open access and open source in chemistry

,----[ Quote ]
| Scientific data are being generated and shared at ever-increasing
| rates. Two new mechanisms for doing this have developed: open 
| access publishing and open source research. We discuss both,
| with recent examples, highlighting the differences between the
| two, and the strengths of both.


Open Source Research -- the Power of Us

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source methods have delivered tangible benefits in the computer
| science community. We describe here efforts to extend these principles
| to science generally, and in particular biomedical research. Open
| source research holds great promise for solving complex problems in
| areas where profit-driven research is seen to have failed. We
| illustrate this with a specific problem in organic chemistry that
| we think will be solved substantially faster with an open
| source approach.


Biology Goes Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Some of the world's biggest drug companies are finding that
| their genetic research is worth more to them if they give it away.
