Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

New Applications

I’ve just added two applications to the list of Mac OSX compatible software.

Balloon creates 3D atomic coordinates from molecular connectivity via distance geometry and confomer ensembles using a multi-objective genetic algorithm. The input can be SMILES, SDF or MOL2 format. Output is SDF or MOL2. Flexibility of aliphatic rings and stereochemistry about double bonds and tetrahedral chiral atoms is handled.
ShaEP aligns (superimposes) two rigid 3D molecular structure models and computes a similarity index for the overlay. It can be used for the virtual screening of libraries of chemical structures against a known active molecule, or as a preparative step for 3D QSAR methods.
