CHARMm (Chemistry at HARvard Molecular Mechanics)
Last Update: 12-16-2000

CHARMm is the commercial version of CHARMM program for macromolecular simulations. It is one of the modules in Insight II and Quanta packages from MSI. CHARMm is a highly regarded and widely used simulation package. CHARMm combines standard minimization and dynamics capabilities with expert features including normal mode calculations, correlation analysis, and combined quantum and molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods. Simulations provide information concerning molecular-level structure, interactions, and energetics. Originally developed in the laboratory of Professor Martin Karplus at Harvard University, this program allows you to perform classical empirical energy calculations on a variety of small and large molecular systems, including proteins, nucleic acids, and carbohydrates. It is availble for Silicon Graphics workstations, Cray servers ( T3E, J90, and T90) and IBM RS/6000 workstations.
