Dear All,

It is time for my yearly unashamed 'carma' plug. Be merciful.

____________________________________________________________________________

carma v.1.3

We have released a stable new version (version 1.3) of 'carma' which is a

stand-alone molecular dynamics analysis tool tuned for the DCD-PSF world.

The program is free, open-source software and is immediately available for

download via http://utopia.duth.gr/~glykos/Carma.html The distribution

includes source code, documentation and pre-compiled executable images

suitable for GNU/Linux, MacOSX and windows for both carma and the grcarma

graphical user interface.

Carma can calculate the variance-covariance and cross-correlation

matrices, do a principal component analysis using both Cartesian PCA and

dihedral angle PCA, do a PCA-based cluster analysis, remove overall

rotations/translations, calculate the mass-weighted radius of gyration,

calculate the average CA-CA distance map and the rmsd from it (for the

length of the trajectory), calculate the average structure and atomic rms

fluctuations, calculate distances and torsion angles between arbitrary sets

of atoms, calculate solute's entropy using both Schlitter's and

Andricioaei's formulas, allow a primitive quick view of a trajectory on a

X11-capable terminal, calculate CNS- and XPLOR-compatible density maps

representing the average distribution of selected atomic species (eg. ions

or waters), calculate RMSD matrices, export 3D PCA-based landscapes in CNS

map format (suitable for direct input to VMD), calculate fraction of native

contacts using three different Q implementations, etc.

grcarma is a graphical user interface that fully automates several of the

most common analysis tasks ranging from automated dPCA-cPCA-based clustering

(with automatic extraction of representative structures), to secondary

structure analysis and calculation of RMSD matrices.

bug reports, flames) should be directed to carma's mailing list at

example, to the innocent mailing lists that I've misused for advertising

this new version).

Best regards,
