QUACPAC:- pKa and tautomer enumeration
QUACPAC provides pKa and tautomer enumeration in order to get correct protonation states. It also offers multiple partial charge models (including MMFF94 , AM1-BCC , and AMBER ) that cover a range of speed and quality in order to allow appropriate charging for every end use. QUACPAC's approach to tautomeric enumeration is to provide multiple tautomeric states rather than one "correct" tautomer. Subsequent downstream processes are then used to identify the appropriate tautomeric form.

REFMAC also produces an MTZ output file containing weighted coefficients for SigmaA weighted mFo-DFcalc and 2mFo-DFcalc maps, where "missing data" have been restored.
RegExRX:- A complete regular expression development tool
I don’t use regular expressions often enough to become an expert but I do use them often enough to know how valuable they are. I always seem to spend more time than I’d like sorting out the regular expression and I often feel that I’ve done something similar before.
I came across an application that I think will make my life a lots easier, RegExRX is a regular expression development tool.
A complete regular expression development tool meant for novices and professionals alike, this editor has many features designed to help in the development and storage of regular expressions. Based on the PCRE library, RegExRX will allow a user to craft patterns that are compatible with most regular expression flavors and will let them easily copy those patterns to other languages like Objective-C, Perl, Ruby, PHP and Xojo.
ome features include:
- Search and Replace modes.
- Color-coded tokens in both the "search" and "replace" patterns.
- Live matching against source text. Live replace too, where applicable.
- Insert menus with almost every acceptable token and a description of what they do, including constructs for various groupings, conditionals, lookarounds, and POSIX expressions.
- A "Match List" that shows all matches, with subexpressions and group names, and represents invisible characters like a space or return with their token equivalents ("\s" or "\r").
- A Templates menu for oft-used patterns. Save As Template from the File menu, or download free samples from our website directly into the Templates folder.
- Export the Match List to a text file, Excel, or FileMaker Pro XML.
- Save the Replaced Text to a text file.
- Stats on both the source text and replaced text so you can tell exactly where you are and what characters are represented at all times. Helps avoid errors caused by invisible characters.
- Linked scrolling among the source text, the replaced text and the Match List.
- Support for Unicode tokens, verbs, and subroutines.
- Save regular expressions in documents for reuse.
- Open as many windows as desired.
- Multiple levels of undo and redo.
- Link your sample source text to a file for easy reloading.
- Support for free-spacing mode.
- Full Unicode support, including a chart of all Unicode characters.
- A fluid interface that lets you resize each panel freely.

rNMR:- An add-on for R
rNMR is an add-on for R.
rNMR is an open source software package for visualizing and interpreting one and two dimensional NMR data. In contrast to most existing 2D NMR software, rNMR is specifically designed for high-throughput assignment and quantification of small molecules. As a result, rNMR supports extensive batch manipulation of plotting parameters and has numerous tools for expediting repetitive resonance assignment and quantification tasks.
I’ve added it to the spectroscopy page.

SDF2XYZ2SDF:- Cheminformatics link to TINKER
The sdf2xyz2sdf package consists of two programs:
sdf2xyz2sdf depends on OpenBabel for MMFF atom type and charge assignment. Since input to sdf2tinkerxyz is entered through standard input, and output from tinkerxyz2sdf is printed on standard output, it is possible to pipe output from OpenBabel into sdf2tinkerxyz, or to pipe tinkerxyz2sdf output into OpenBabel, so that virtually any format conversion from/to TINKER XYZ may be accomplished.
Interestingly, also ionic heteroaromatic rings which could not be assigned proper charges by the original TINKER-MMFF code are correctly accounted for by sdf2xyz2sdf.

SZYBKI:- optimizes molecular structures with the Merck Molecular Force Field
SZYBKI optimizes molecular structures with the Merck Molecular Force Field, either with or without solvent effect, to yield quality 3D molecular structures for use as input to other programs. Since the chemistry of molecular interactions is a matter of shape and electrostatics, it is impossible to consider either without reasonable 3D molecular structures. SZYBKI also refines portions of a protein structure and optimize ligands within a protein active site, making it useful in conjunction with docking programs.
SZMAP:- Water mapping in protein
SZMAP uses semi-continuum Poisson-Boltzmann electrostatics to map variations in solvent properties in a protein binding site. It identifies key waters, shows their interactions, compares them to the corresponding ligand atoms, and determines whether neighboring waters aid or hinder binding. The newly released tool GAMEPLAN, suggests ways to modify ligand chemistry based on this understanding of water structure in the immediate environment of the ligand.
