Zephyr Updated

OpenMM Zephyr is a freely available molecular simulation application with an easy-to-use graphical user interface. It is built on top of the visualization tool VMD and a special version of the molecular dynamics code GROMACS. This version of GROMACS uses the OpenMM API for GPU-accelerated molecular simulations. The new release is able to run on Mac OSX and further simplifies the installation process. See the Zephyr website at http://simtk.org/home/zephyr for a list of other features that were added and to download.

With version 0.9.2, OpenMM Zephyr makes it even easier to run molecular dynamics simulations. OpenMM Zephyr is a freely available molecular simulation application with an easy-to-use graphical user interface and GPU-acceleration capabilities on both NVIDIA and ATI GPUs. This latest version of OpenMM Zephyr has automated many of the steps for converting PDB molecule files into the format required for the simulations.
