PLUMED, the community-developed PLUgin for MolEcular Dynamics, is a an open-source, community-developed library that provides a wide range of different methods, which include:

  • enhanced-sampling algorithms

  • free-energy methods

  • tools to analyze the vast amounts of data produced by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations.

PLUMED works together with some of the most popular MD engines, including GROMACS, NAMD and OpenMM which are available on Bede.

On Bede, PLUMED is made available through the HECBioSim Project.
