Running NAMD on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
From Nicole Chan on December 24th, 2020
In this demo, we will deploy a GPU machine on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, install NAMD, and run a model using NAMD software. NAMD is a molecular dynamics software that simulates the movements of atoms in biomolecules under a predefined set of conditions. It is used to identify the behavior of these biomolecules when exposed to changes in temperature, pressure and other inputs that mimic the actual conditions encountered in a living organism. NAMD can be used to establish patterns in protein folding, protein-ligand binding, and cell membrane transport, making it a very useful application for drug research and discovery.
