Schrödinger Maestro free for academic use


Schrödinger Inc are offering their molecular mechanics program maestro free for academic use. Although I personally don’t carry out any molecular mechanics calculcations as part of my research (yet), I thought it was probably worth grabbing a copy and giving it a go – it may be handy for producing starting geometries for QC calculations.

First impressions are that it’s quite difficult to use and the demo from the help menu is almost pointless, I was expecting some kind of tutorial to show me how to run calculations and instead I got the program doing various things on it’s own that you couldn’t interact with. Still, it seems capable of producing some really nice images so it may be worth a longer trial.
