PDB2PQR 2.1 released


A new version of PDB2PQR has been released.

APBS (Adaptive Poisson-Boltzmann Solver) and PDB2PQR are software packages designed to help you analyze the solvation properties of small and macro-molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, and other complex systems

  • Added alternate method to do visualization using 3dmol.
  • Replaced the Monte Carlo method for generating titration curves with graph cut. See (If you prefer the Monte Carlo method, please use
  • Added compile options to allow for arbitrary flags to be added. Helps work around some platforms where scons does not detect the needed settings correctly.
  • Added a check before calculating pKa's for large interactions energies.

OSX binaries require OSX 10.6 or newer. The OSX binary is 64-bit.
