GaudiMM, for Genetic Algorithms with Unrestricted Descriptors for Intuitive Molecular Modeling, helps to sketch new molecular designs that require complex interactions.

Full multi-objective optimization

  • Feel free to optimize H bonds, hydrophobic interactions, desolvation effects, distances between given sets of atoms, rotamers and more, without compromises.

Unprecedented customizability

  • Every gene and objective is a separate module, so they can be called on demand one or more times. This flexible approach allows very different calculations with the same mindset: exploration and evaluation.

Developer friendly

  • If the provided genes and objectives are not enough, you can always code your own ones. Check out the developer docs!
