Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the BiKi Life Sciences suite. This software makes it easy for computational medicinal chemists to run ad hoc molecular dynamics protocols in a novel and task-oriented environment; as a notebook, BiKi (acronym of Binding Kinetics) keeps memory of any activity together with dependencies among them. It offers unique accelerated protein-ligand binding/unbinding methods and other useful tools to gain actionable knowledge from molecular dynamics simulations and to simplify the drug discovery process.
