Molecular Mechanics Engine

Hello All,

I’ve recently started using Avogadro’s Molecular Mechanics capabilities as
an initial guess for quantum chemistry calculations. I was wondering if
Avogadro is a front-end to one of the more popular MM codes or if it
implements MM natively. Also if it is a front-end, what is it a front-end
to? I’ve looked all over the wiki site and I can’t seem to find the info I’m
looking for.

Sincerely,
Yung-Jin

Avogadro is a front-end to one of the more popular MM codes or if it implements MM natively. Also if it is a front-end, what is it a front-end to? I’ve looked all over the wiki site and I can’t seem to find the info I’m looking for.

Avogadro implements MM “natively” – that is, it uses the implementations in Open Babel.

Hope that helps,
-Geoff
