BOSS (molecular mechanics)

BOSS[1] (an acronym for Biochemical and Organic Simulation System) is a general-purpose molecular modeling program that performs Yale University.

Key features

  • OPLS Force Field inventor
  • Geometry optimization
  • Semiempirical quantum chemistry
  • MC simulations for pure liquids, solutions, clusters or gas-phase systems
  • Free energy are computed from statistical perturbation (FEP) theory
  • TIP3P, TIP4P and TIP5P water models
