Tinker software free download is a tools for molecular design and molecular modeling in chemistry. The Tinker molecular modeling software is a complete and general package for molecular mechanics and dynamics, with some special features for biopolymers.
Tinker has the ability to use any of several common parameter sets, such as Amber (ff94, ff96, ff98, ff99, ff99SB), CHARMM (19, 22, 22/CMAP), Allinger MM (MM2-1991 and MM3-2000), OPLS (OPLS-UA, OPLS-AA), Merck Molecular Force Field (MMFF), Liam Dang’s polarizable model, AMOEBA (2004, 2009, 2013, 2017, 2018) polarizable atomic multipole force fields, AMOEBA+ that adds charge penetration effects, and our new HIPPO (Hydrogen-like Interatomic Polarizable POtential) force field. Parameter sets for other force field models are under consideration for future releases. Force Field Explorer (Tinker-FFE) is a Java-based GUI for the Tinker package.
The Tinker software contains a variety of interesting algorithms such as: flexible implementation of atomic multipole-based electrostatics with explicit dipole polarizability, various continuum solvation treatments including several generalized Born (GB/SA) models, generalized Kirkwood implicit solvation for AMOEBA, an interface to APBS for Poisson-Boltzmann calculations, efficient truncated Newton (TNCG) local optimization, surface areas and volumes with derivatives.
free energy calculations via the Bennett Acceptance Ratio (BAR) method, normal mode vibrational analysis, minimization in Cartesian, torsional or rigid body space, symplectic RESPA multiple time step integration for molecular dynamics, velocity Verlet stochastic dynamics, pairwise neighbor lists and splined spherical energy cutoff methods, particle mesh Ewald (PME) summation for partial charges and polarizable multipoles, a novel reaction field treatment of long range electrostatics, fast distance geometry metrization with better sampling than standard methods, Elber’s reaction path algorithm, potential smoothing and search (PSS) methods for global optimization, Monte Carlo Minimization (MCM) for efficient potential surface scanning, tools for fitting charge, multipole and polarization models to QM-based electrostatic potentials.
OpenMM is a molecular modeling library developed at Stanford University. It supports the AMOEBA force field, and supplies CUDA code implementing AMOEBA on NVIDIA GPUs. On this site we provide code interfacing selected Tinker programs with OpenMM. The source code and a Makefile needed to construct OpenMM-enabled Tinker ANALYZE, BAR and DYNAMIC programs is available below for download.
