  • Description

    an open source library for free energy calculations in molecular systems that works with some of the most popular molecular dynamics engines. Perform free energy calculations as a function of many order parameters with a particular focus on biological problems, using state of the art methods such as metadynamics, umbrella sampling and Jarzynski-equation-based steered MD.
