VeraChem is pleased to announce the release of VM2 3.0, the latest version of its software for the calculation of protein-ligand and host-guest binding free energies.

VM2 3.0 includes an end-to-end workflow capability that automates system setup and forcefield typing/parameter assignment, ligand 2D to 3D conversion, generation of initial receptor-ligand conformations, submission of free energy calculations via resource managers, and collection and organization of final binding free energy results. Extensive benchmarking of VM2 3.0 predicted binding free...

Prof. Mike Gilson talks about VM2 for fast accurate protein-ligand binding free energies.

Professor Mike Gilson, co-founder of VeraChem, talks about our VM2 software for fast, accurate calculation of protein-ligand binding free energies, including mining minima theory, implementation, benchmarks, and directions. See Professor Gilson’s presentation here.

A joint VeraChem, Iowa State University, and University of Colorado Denver study applying QM-VM2 to the calculation of host-guest binding free energies published in the Journal of Chemical Physics.

QM-VM2, which efficiently combines statistical mechanics with quantum mechanical (QM) energy potentials in order to calculate noncovalent binding free energies of host–guest systems, is presented. QM-VM2 efficiently couples the use of semi-empirical QM (SEQM) energies and geometry optimizations with an underlying molecular mechanics (MM) based conformational search, to find low...

VeraChem is pleased to announce the release of version 2.8 of its binding free energy software package VM2

‎Release of VM2 version 2.8 includes improved multi-GPU support, CloudVM2 support of Google Cloud Platform in addition to AWS, new algorithms for VM2 free energy calculations for ligands with unknown pose, fast-VM2 (30 minute free energies) for ligand series where a scaffold pose is known. Request a license for VM2...

VeraChem’s newly developed CloudVM2 capability applied in early stage R&D efforts

VeraChem has developed a capability to run its protein-ligand binding free energy software package on the Amazon Web Services cloud environment. This CloudVM2 package enables calculation of protein-ligand binding affinities for hundreds of ligands per day, and was recently applied in early stage R&D efforts by Sarfez Pharmaceuticals Inc.
