  • Molecular modelling

    24th April 2012

    Sophisticated molecular modelling software is used by the ACGT through an annual licence agreement to the Accelrys Insight II software suite. Insight II is a 3D graphical environment for molecular modelling that includes 3D protein modelling and docking, drug discovery and lead optimisation.

    The powerful user interface of Insight II enables the seamless flow of data between a wide range of scientific applications. The software environment integrates builder modules, development tools, force fields, simulation and visualization tools with tools specifically developed for applications in the life and materials sciences.

    Insight II runs on IBM AIX, Linux, and Silicon Graphics workstations and servers. The full suite of software includes the following modules:

      • Affinity
      • Biopolymer
      • C2 Conformers
      • C2 DB Access
