In Computational Biophysics Research Team, RIKEN R-CCS, we have developed GENESIS (GENeralized-Ensemble SImulation System) for understanding and predicting dynamic processes in chemical and biological systems. GENESIS is software for molecular dynamics (MD) simulations based on QM/MM, atomistic, and coarse-grained molecular models. GENESIS shows one of the best performances for large-scale MD simulations of biological systems using many CPU cores and GPUs in recent computers.
