The suite can also be used to carry out complete molecular mechanics investigations (using NAB), but which are restricted to gas-phase or generalized Born solvent models. New to version 1.3 are: (a) parallel options for trajectory analysis in ptraj; (b) a quantum chemistry program, sqm, that implements various semi-empirical and SCC-DFTB Hamiltonians; (c) a Poisson-Boltzmann solver with a variety of useful options for energy analysis using a continuum solvent model.
