The Schrodinger molecular modeling software suite includes a number of popular programs focused on drug design and materials science but of general applicability, for example Glide, Jaguar, and MacroModel. Maestro is the graphical user interface for the suite. It allows the user to construct and graphically manipulate both simple and complex chemical structures, to apply molecular mechanics and dynamics techniques to evaluate the energies and g

ANSYS Workbench platform is the backbone for delivering a comprehensive and integrated simulation system to users. See ANSYS Workbench platform for more information.
Availability and Restrictions
ANSYS Workbench is available on Owens Cluster. The versions currently available at OSC are:
OSC is refreshing the software stack on Oakley on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime); something we have not done since Oakley entered service in 2012. During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date and some older versions are removed. Information about the old and new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.
Q-Chem is a general purpose ab initio electronic structure program. Its latest version emphasizes Self-Consistent Field, especially Density Functional Theory, post Hartree-Fock, and innovative algorithms for fast performance and reduced scaling calculations. Geometry optimizations, vibrational frequencies, thermodynamic properties, and solution modeling are available.
The General Atomic and Molecular Electronic Structure System (GAMESS) is a flexible ab initio electronic structure program. Its latest version can perform general valence bond, multiconfiguration self-consistent field, Möller-Plesset, coupled-cluster, and configuration interaction calculations. Geometry optimizations, vibrational frequencies, thermodynamic properties, and solution modeling are available. It performs well on open shell and excited state systems and can model relativistic effects.
SIESTA is both a method and its computer program implementation, to perform efficient electronic structure calculations and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of molecules and solids. More information can be found from here.
The February 2014 SUG HPC Tech Talk focused on using the NVIDIA GPUs for computational chemistry. Slides are attached.
TURBOMOLE is an ab initio computational chemistry program that implements various quantum chemistry algorithms. It is focused on efficiency, notably using the resolution of the identity (RI) approximation.
Quantum ESPRESSO (QE) is a program package for ab-initio molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and electronic structure calculations. It is based on density-functional theory, plane waves, and pseudopotentials.
The Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package, VASP, is a suite for quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and electronic structure calculations.
