Nanoscale Molecular Dynamics (NAMD) is scalable parallel molecular dynamics application based on Charm++ parallel objects. NAMD is designed for high-performance simulations of large biomolecular systems. NAMD was developed by the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group (TCBG) in the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). For more, see the NAMD website and the NAMD User's Guide.

At Indiana University, NAMD is available on the Big Red II and Karst research computing systems.

If you need help using NAMD on an IU research computing system, email the UITS Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning (SciAPT) team.

For more information about the availability of software on the Indiana University shared central systems, see At IU, what software is available on the research computing systems?
