  • Description

    a general purpose program for protein design, to redesign entire proteins or functional sites such as ligand-binding pockets. It uses a physics-based energy function and a stochastic method to search sequence and conformation space and allows users to directly select mutations that increase ligand binding free energy or ligand specificity. It can perform constant-pH Monte Carlo, which yields acid/base constants or pKa’s.
