Molecular simulation methods have increasingly contributed to our understanding of molecular and nanoscale systems. Here, the development of a generic, versatile simulation package is reported for stochastic simulations and its application to protein conformational change, proteinprotein association, small-molecule protein docking, and simulation of the growth of nanoscale clusters of organic molecules is demonstrated. Simulation of molecular and nanoscale systems is easy to use for standard simulations via a graphical user interface and highly parallel both via MPI and the use of graphical processors.
