ClustalW is a general purpose multiple alignment program for DNA or proteins. ClustalX is a graphical user interface for the ClustalW multiple sequence alignment program.
QIIME 2 is a powerful, extensible, and decentralized microbiome analysis package with a focus on data and analysis transparency. QIIME 2 enables researchers to start an analysis with raw DNA sequence data and finish with publication-quality figures and statistical results. QIIME 2 is a complete redesign and rewrite of the QIIME 1 microbiome analysis pipeline.
RAxML (Randomized Axelerated Maximum Likelihood) is a program for sequential and parallel Maximum Likelihood based inference of large phylogenetic trees. It can also be used for post- analyses of sets of phylogenetic trees, analyses of alignments and, evolutionary placement of short reads.
PyMOL is a Python-enhanced molecular graphics program. It excels at 3D visualization of proteins, small molecules, density, surfaces, and trajectories. It also includes molecular editing, ray tracing, and movies. It also has a number of third party plugins available. Currently installed third party plugins at MSI are: Caver v2, Mole, and EMovie.
Vasp is a package for performing ab-initio quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics (MD) using pseudopotentials and a plane wave basis set. The approach implemented in Vasp is based on a finite-temperature local-density approximation (with the free energy as variational quantity) and an exact evaluation of the instantaneous electronic ground state at each MD-step using efficient matrix diagonalization schemes and an efficient Pulay mixing. Note: MSI is allowed to host the software, but MSI cannot purchase a license. Each group must purchase their own license and each group member must be...
