Center for Molecular Modeling
Chief: Peter J Steinbach, Ph.D.
The Center for Molecular Modeling is a major supplier of molecular modeling resources and expertise to the NIH research community. We help organize molecular modeling users at the NIH by sponsoring the inter-institute MOLECULAR MODELING INTEREST GROUP (MMIG). We have used the NIH network to create a distributed molecular modeling environment (MMIGNET) that is accessible from UNIX workstations and personal computers maintained by individual investigators throughout the NIH's Institutes.
The CMM's computational chemists collaborate with NIH researchers on molecular modeling-related projects. Our scientific interests include the modeling of macromolecular structure and dynamics, the structure-function relationships of macromolecules, macromolecular interactions, and ligand binding.
