Hi Justin thank you,

The ATB server link for Biotin are as follow..

Now should I need to do QM calculations, free energy simulations, and
empirical refinement.
What is your opinion on  these topics.

Is there any free available software for these work???( I never did any QM
calclation, Sorry for these basic Question).

With Best Wishes and Regards,
Rama David.
