Month 18 release of the VECMA VVUQ Toolkit

We are pleased to announce the Month 18 release of the VECMA VVUQ Toolkit (VECMAtk). The VECMAtk provides several tools for end users to capture complex scenarios, applied to applications in wide science and engineering domains, and used to run multiscale simulations on any desktop, cluster or supercomputing platform. Some new features have been added…

Spreading our climate research across the general public

We are spreading our climate research widely across the general public. Researchers from the VECMA project has recently drafted an article for the Conversation around our migration models, and featuring VECMA among many other things.

UCL methodology outperforms commercial solutions for protein-drug binding affinity calculations

A joint UCL / Janssen team has performed a statistically robust head-to-head comparison between the Centre for Computational Science’s high performance computational method, TIES, and that offered by a commercial provider, Schrödinger Inc, FEP+, for calculating relative free energies of binding of candidate drugs to target proteins. TIES and FEP+ use different so-called “alchemical” free…
