SAMSON, Software for Adaptive Modeling and Simulation Of Nanosystems


SAMSON is a novel software platform for computational nanoscience. Rapidly build models of nanotubes, proteins, and complex nanosystems. Run interactive simulations to simulate chemical reactions, bend graphene sheets, (un)fold proteins. SAMSON's generic architecture makes it suitable for material science, life science, physics, electronics, chemistry, and even education. SAMSON is developed by the NANO-D group at INRIA, and means "Software for Adaptive Modeling and Simulation Of Nanosystems.


SAMSON has an open architecture which allows anyone to extend it - and adapt it to their needs - by downloading SAMSON Elements (modules). SAMSON Elements come in many flavors: apps, editors, controllers, models, parsers, etc., and are adapted to different application domains. SAMSON Elements help users build new models, perform calculations, run interactive or offline simulations, visualize and interpret results, and more. Add new SAMSON Elements to SAMSON straight from SAMSON Connect.

In the latest news Python scripting is coming to SAMSON 0.7.0. Most of the SAMSON API is now exposed in Python, and this will allow you to create models and run simulations, generate movies, perform analysis and reporting, etc., directly from scripts. Python will make it even easier to integrate and pipeline SAMSON and SAMSON Elements with well-known packages from diverse fields, e.g. TensorFlow, PyRosetta, RDKit, ASE, etc., to name a few
