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.

Features

  • The ability of storing and switching between multiple atom coordinates, for conformational changes and rotameric representation of side chain conformational freedom.
  • The ability to build and store multiple residue identities (i.e. LEU, ILE, ALA) at a position and switch between them.
  • # The CHARMM force field and other energy functions.
  • Transformations such as translations, rotations, and alignments.
  • Search algorithms such as Monte Carlo, Dead End Elimination, and Self Consistent Mean Field Monte Carlo., backbone sampling
  • Crystal lattice generation.
  • Support for rotamer libraries
  • Backbone modification and generation

Discover and troubleshoot application dependencies to determine if it’s an application or network problem with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

Server & Application Monitor helps you discover application dependencies to help identify relationships between application servers. Drill into those connections to view the associated network performance such as latency and packet loss, and application process resource utilization metrics such as CPU and memory usage. Determine if process utilization or network performance is affecting the application and end-user performance.
