Nova Applications on Mac: Bringing the Power of Protein Modeling to the Desktop
You asked for it and we delivered: Protein modeling on macOS
Last week we released a new version of our local Nova Applications for protein modeling. These tools have been available to run on the cloud using our NovaCloud Services or locally, on a Linux computer, for several years. Starting this month, you can also run our Nova Applications on a Mac!
NovaCloud Services allow users to take advantage of AWS computing resources to model protein structures and protein-protein docking interactions from any computer, even one with limited hardware resources. However, due to institutional regulations or personal preference, some users prefer to model proteins on their local computers, keeping all data and computations in-house. In a response to user requests, we’ve now made this powerful functionality available to Mac users as well.
All of our Nova Applications can now be run locally on Mac or Linux, or through NovaCloud Services. This includes:
Model protein structures from sequence data using our hybrid threading and ab initio approach, based on the award-winning I-TASSER algorithm.
Predict antibody structures and model heavy and light chains.
Create protein-protein docking simulations using SwarmDock.
Whether you choose to access Nova Applications on the cloud or locally, you can expect highly accurate results with full reports and visualizations in Protean 3D. Learn more by watching our protein modeling videos.
