Dear Gromacs Users,

In the context of a joined French-USA research project between the  
Universite de Picardie - Jules Verne and the Sanford|Burnham Medical  
Research Institute I am pleased to announce the release of the May  
2014 version of the RED Python program, or PyRED, interfaced by R.E.D.  
Server Development at q4md-forcefieldtools.org:


R.E.D. Server Development is a service designed to generate force  
field parameters and build force field libraries for new  
molecules/molecular fragments. This Internet site provides the  
software and hardware resources required for the generation of AMBER  
and GLYCAM type empirical force fields, that can be used by  
computational biologists involved in force field based structural  
studies. CHARMM and OPLS force fields can also be targeted by applying  
user-defined options.

All researchers from the academic world and from private laboratories  
can use R.E.D. Server Development, and registration to use R.E.D.  
Server Development is not mandatory.

PyRED was presented at the 247th ACS National Meeting in Dallas (TX,  
USA) last March 2014:

A new tutorial is now available:

Users of the R.E.D. III.x tools and of R.E.D. Server (interface of the  
Ante_RED 2.0 and R.E.D. IV program) are strongly encouraged to switch  
to R.E.D. Server Development/PyRED.

Funding of this project is provided by the Conseil Regional de  
Picardie and the European Regional Development Fund.
