I would like to introduce a program of molecular modeling Ascalaph

molecular modelling software

DNA moldelling with Ascalaph


General Features:

Much attention is paid to design the initial models. Molecules can be drawn by hand, then put in the minimal reasonable conformation with aid of rough optimization, and then optimized by quantum-chemical methods. There is a constructor of chain molecules, which allows to create a model with pre-installed molecular-mechanical parameters form the residues. Users can create their own residues and add them to the database. There is a procedure for adding the box with a solvent, such as a water. This box should be made separately and then added to the model. The overlapping solvent molecules can be automatically removed.

Interface with quantum chemical programs primarily designed to develop the parameters of molecular mechanical force fields. Currently supported NWChem, CP2K and PC GAMESS/Firefly.

I will be very grateful for comments and suggestions.



  1. Ascalaph 1.7.7 released
