A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

Molecular Dynamics Software


Amber (acronym to Assisted Model Building with Energy Refinement) is a suite of programs that allow users to perform molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on biological systems. This web portal makes available the entire functionality of AMBER, in particular (but not only) using NMR-derived information as restraints for MD. Go to the service >>


GROMACS is a versitile package to perform molecular dynamics, i.e simulate the Newtonian equations of motion for systems with hundreds to millions of particles. GROMACS is able to work with many biochemical molecules like proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. The WeNMR GROMACS webportal combines the versitility of this molecular dynamics package with the calculation power of the eNMR grid. This will enable you to perform many simulations from the comfort of your internet browser anywhere in the world. The server is furthermore aimed to provide a user friendly and efficient MD experience by performing many preperation and optimization steps automatically. Go to the service >>
