  • Description

    a heavily optimized molecular dynamics (MD) engine specially designed to run on NVIDA GPUs. It is extremely fast (115ns/day for DHFR using 1 GPU) and performs MD simulations on the microsecond scale in a single workstation. ACEMD can read CHARMM/NAMD and AMBER input files, works with CUDA and OpenCL, and uses similar syntax to other MD software.

  • Usage

    To list all executables provided by ACEMD, run: $ sbgrid-list acemd Copy to clipboard
  • Usage Notes

    ​ACEMD (Basic Mode) is freely available to non-profit labs. Basic mode limits users from running the software on more than one GPU. To access this software, users must register using the htmd_register command. Users will need an ACEMD Pro node-locked license from Acellera to run the software on multiple GPUs.
