CHARMM and the Development of Methods and Techniques in Molecular Mechanics, August 2009

Edited by Charles L. Brooks III and Martin Karplus

CHARMM (Chemistry at HARvard Macromolecular Mechanics) is one of the oldest–established and best–known software programs used for the study of molecular dynamics. It is also the name of a widely used set of force fields for molecular dynamics.

CHARMM facilitates the generation and analysis of a wide range of molecular simulations, and has accumulated a huge number of features. More advanced features include free energy perturbation (FEP), quasi–harmonic entropy estimation, correlation analysis and combined quantum, and molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods.

Journal of Computational Chemistry is proud to present the CHARMM related papers below.
