MOE update 2018.01 released
The latest update to Chemical Computing Group's Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) software includes a variety of new features, enhancements
Windows XP (finally!) and macOS 10.6 have been removed from the list of officially supported platforms. Supported Windows platforms are Vista/7/8/10, and the minimum supported macOS is 10.7 (Lion).
Amber14:EHT Forcefield. The Amber14 parameter set is now supported in MOE. The new parameters consist of improvements to nucleic acids; otherwise, protein and small molecule parameters (and charges) are unchanged. The forcefield can be selected in the MOE | Footer.
TCR-MHC Protein Complex Database. A new MOE Project database containing T-Cell Receptor (TCR) – Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) x-ray structures has been added to MOE. The database can be accessed with MOE | Protein | Search | TCR-MHC | TCR-MHC which will launch the MOE Project Search panel.
Several applications have been parallelized to run in the moe -mpu environment:
- Descriptor calculations with the SVL function QuaSAR_DescriptorMDB.
- Energy minimization in the Database Viewer DBV | Compute | Molecule | Energy Minimize.
- Conformational search using MDB input files in MOE | Compute | Conformations | Search.
- Rotamer library generation with DBV | Compute | Build Rotamer Library.
- Project database creation with the SVL run file dbupdate.svl and the scripts $MOE/bin/projupdate and $MOE/bin/projupdate.bat.
I plan to review the latest version of MOE in the near future.
