PyRod is a python software developed to generate dynamic molecular interaction fields (dMIFs) and pharmacophore features based on analyzing the protein environment of water molecules in molecular dynamcis simulations. Check the PyRod wiki for more information on installation and usage. The employed algorithms are described in the PyRod publication in JCIM.
