Packages currently available

This table gives you an overview of the packages developed at the CMBI (one of the 5 departments that merged into our departmet Medical BioSciences). Some packages are freely availably, others can be ordered, more information can be found at the package site.

Package name Description
dBlast The DBLAST package is a wrapper for distributed NCBI BLAST, and was designed to run BLAST on Beowulf clusters, SMP machines, and MOSIX machines, without the need to buy/build/use a parallel BLAST version (MPI/PVM...).
Molden MOLDEN a pre- and post processing program of molecular and electronic structure
WHAT IF WHAT IF is a versatile protein structure analysis program that can be used for mutant prediction, structure verification, molecular graphics, etc.
Yasara YASARA is an interactive real-time molecular dynamics program, covering a wide range of topics in the rapidly growing field of structural bioinformatics: Molecular modeling, protein folding (based on any amount of information available: from sequence alone to fully assigned NMR spectra), docking and parallel macromolecular dynamics.
