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…

Month 15 release of VECMA VVUQ Toolkit

We are very pleased to announce the Month 15 release of VECMA VVUQ Toolkit (VECMAtk). The software development of the VECMAtk is the central task for the VECMA project. The VECMAtk establishes a platform for verification, validation and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ). The goal is to provide tools for end users to capture complex scenarios, applied…
