True free energies calculated

  • Free energy provides more accurate protein-ligand affinity prediction
  • Includes configurational and conformational entropy
  • Accounts for anharmonic effects

Flexible ligand and protein

  • Fully mobile receptor region essential for accurate pose and affinity prediction
  • Protein backbone fully flexible as well as side chain
  • User can select regions to be mobile or fixed as required

Handles diverse ligand sets

  • Unlike FEP methods arbitrary changes can easily be made to ligand functional groups
  • Can efficiently use system information if available e.g. pose
  • However can determine pose with no prior knowledge if required

Highly efficient conformational searching

  • Conformational search engine efficiently and reliably finds low energy minima of large systems
  • Novel distort-minimize algorithms
  • Uses distortions along linear combinations of torsional modes
  • In addition rigid body rotation-translation searching

Fast accurate solvation

  • Poisson-Boltzmann Surface Area (PBSA) corrected potential energies
  • Easily include explicit water molecules in the binding site when required

Energy decomposition for binding affinity analysis

  • Can determine favorable and unfavorable free energy contributions to the binding affinity of functional groups
  • Helps guide ligand design decisions in lead optimization efforts


Access the power of the Cloud

  • Ported to Amazon Web Services cloud platform and Google Cloud Platform
  • Easy to use graphical interface to submit VM2 calculations
  • Fast turnaround – calculate affinities for a whole protein-ligand series concurrently
