This page contains several documents relating to computational chemistry.
Documents are ordered by the date when they were placed in the
CCL archives. Note that CCL archives existed BEFORE the advent of WWW
(initially as FTP and MAILSERV, then GOPHER was added as a retrieval
mechanism). If you have useful material to contribute to this
page, please share and upload it to CCL Archive using
the CCL UPLOAD PAGE.

- 2008.01.10 Protonate 3D:
Assignment of Macromolecular Protonation
State and Geometry by Paul Labute,
Chemical Computing Group.
Protonate 3D is an application which assigns protonation states and geometries
(taking titration into account) to macromolecular structures using an
algorithm that solves the Unary Quadratic Optimization problem.
- 2008.01.10 Ligand Scaffold Replacement
using MOE Pharmacophore Tools by Alain Deschênes
and Elizabeth Sourial, Chemical Computing Group.
We describe a scaffold replacement methodology based upon an
extension of MOE's pharmacophore features. The special Link
pharmacophore features can be used in conjunction with other features, SMARTS
patterns and volume constraints.
