Supported Applications


  • Description

    a suite of tools for small molecule drug discovery. The Schrodinger Suite runs on Linux and Mac workstations, but due to its size, it is not included in our default installation.

  • Usage Notes

    Only available to members in North America and Australia.

    This suite is not included in the default installation due to its size. Please email licensing@sbgrid.org to add the software to your collection.

    SBGrid makes the full Schrödinger Small-Molecule Drug Discovery Suite available to non-profit groups located in North America and Australia. This suite contains applications for cheminformatics, molecular dynamics, docking, QSAR modeling, and homology modeling, and includes a host of other tools.

    Members can easily access Schrödinger software through an SBGrid-hosted license server. The current SBGrid license, due to expire in June 2019, provides unlimited access to Maestro, Schrödinger’s molecular visualization software and the general user interface. For other applications, Schrödinger operates on a token basis, with different jobs requiring a different number of tokens. Our license allows for 125 interchangeable tokens for the use of AutoQSAR, Canvas, ConfGen, Core Hopping, Desmond, Desmond GPU, Epik, Field-based QSAR, Glide, Jaguar, Jaguar pKa, LigPrep, MacroModel, Phase, Shape Screening, Prime, PrimeX, QikProp, QSite, SiteMap, Strike, XP Visualizer.

    For applications that require dedicated licenses, SBGrid members have access to floating licenses for BioLuminate (10) and PIPER (5). We also have 5 seated licenses for the Protein-Ligand Database. For large scale Glide computations we have 40 Glide/XP Visualizer dedicated licenses, which members can reserve in advance by emailing bugs@sbgrid.org.

    Schrödinger, a little like a German car, has good looks and power under the hood. The 3D exterior is powered by Maestro, the primary molecular visualization interface in the Schrödinger Suite that integrates all of the other computational tools. It even supports 3D monitors and glasses that embed the user in a 3D viewing experience.

    Overkill? Not so, says Woody Sherman, VP of application science at Schrödinger. Aha moments come when scientists view structures in these 3D renderings. “The most important moments come from combining graphics with calculations,” he says. “We gain intuition from looking at a structure, but the calculations shed light on the underlying physics. What's the balance between entropy and enthalpy? What hydrogen bonds are important? The calculations tell us how the physics is ...
