Description

MSL is a C++ library that enables the computational study of macromolecules.

The MSL library is not a program (although some applications are distributed) but a tool for scientist to code their own molecular modeling methods.

Philosophy
The main goal is to create a set of tools that enable the computational study of macromolecules with relative ease at all levels, from simple operations (for example, load a PDB and measure a distance or edit a dihedral) to complex applications (protein modeling or design).

MSL is developed in the Senes Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and by a team of developers/users from other research laboratories.
