The underlying approach, discrete molecular dynamics, is one of the fastest strategies for simulating protein dynamics, due, in part, to its efficient sampling of the vast conformation space of biomolecules in both length and time scales. iFold server supports simulations for protein folding, unfolding, thermodynamic scan, simulated annealing and p(fold) analysis.
Currently two-bead/residue Go model is available for protein simulations. Models for DNA and RNA are under development and will be added to iFold in due course. Please use the adjoining menu to register/login to the iFold server. To cite iFold in your research, please use the following reference:
