OMEGA v3.0.0 released


Conformational analysis is a critical component of molecular modelling and I've always viewed OMEGA from OpenEye as the standard to which all other software packages should be compared.

OMEGA's knowledge-based approach produces high-quality conformers, superior to those of many other methods. It has also been found to be the fastest of commercially available conformer generators. Benchmarking Conformer Ensemble Generators, Friedrich, N.-O. de Bruyn Kops, C. Fachsenberg, F. Sommer, K., Rarey, M. Kirchmair, J. J. Chem. Inf. Model. 2017, 57, 2719-2728. DOI.

OMEGA’s capability has been expanded for molecules containing large rings by adding a method specifically tuned to sample macrocyclic conformational space. The approach is based on a rewritten version of the original OMEGA distance geometry algorithm.


In this update support for macOS El Capitan (10.11), macOS Sierra (10.12), and macOS High Sierra (10.13) has been added.
