LAMMPS is classical molecular dynamics (MD) code created for simulating molecular and atomic systems such as proteins in solution, liquid-crystals, polymers, zeolites, or simple Lenard-Jonesium. It was designed for distributed-memory parallel computers and runs on any parallel platform that supports the MPI message-passing library or on single-processor desktops or laptops.
(commercial) MacroModel allows the graphical construction of complex chemical structures and the application of molecular mechanics and dynamics techniques in vacuo or in solution.
MDTools is a Python module which provides a set of classes useful for the analysis and modification of protein structures. Current capabilities include reading psf files, reading and writing (X-PLOR style) pdb and dcd files, calculating phi-psi angles and other properties for arbitrary selections of residues, and parsing output from NAMD into an easy-to-manipulate data object.
MOLMOL is a molecular graphics program for displaying, analyzing, and manipulating the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules, with special emphasis on the study of protein or DNA structures determined by NMR.
Moscito is designed for condensed phase and gas phase MD simulations of molecular aggregates. Standard molecular mechanics force-fields such as AMBER, OPLS, CHARMM and GROMOS can be employed. Simulations can be carried out in different ensembles such as NVE, NVT or NPT using the weak coupling scheme. (Smooth Particle Mesh) Ewald summation is used for long range electrostatic interactions.

Music (Multi-purpose SImulation Code) is an object-oriented package intended to perform various types of Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations with user-specified forcefields. It can be used to simulate diffusion and adsoprtion in zeolites, for liquid and gas simulations as well, and may be easily extended for solid simulations.
NAB was originally designed as a small modeling language (a "molecular awk"), with a principal focus on constructing models for non-helical nucleic acids. It has been used to construct models of helical and non-helical nucleic acids from a few dozen to a few hundred nucleotides in size, and provides a combination of rigid body transformations and distance geometry to create candidate structures that match input criteria. We have applied NAB to duplex-, triplex- and tetraplex DNA, to RNA hairpins and pseudo-knots, to closed-circular DNA, and to models of the small subunit of the ribosome and of recombination sites.
nMOLDYN is an interactive analysis program for Molecular Dynamics simulations. It is especially designed for the computation and decomposition of neutron scattering spectra, but also computes other quantities.
Packmol creates an initial point for molecular dynamics simulations by packing molecules in defined regions of space. The packing guarantees that short range repulsive interactions do not disrupt the simulations.
PINY_MD(c) is a multipurpose, object-oriented molecular simulation package developed as a collaborative effort between Indiana University, New York University and the University of Pennsylvania. PINY_MD(c) is capable of performing a wide variety of molecular dynamics, electronic structure, and geometry optimization calculations.
PyVib2 permits the automatic correlation of vibrational motions of molecules, thereby allowing an understanding of Raman, Raman optical activity (ROA), infrared vibrational absorption (IR), and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra. The versatile representation of vibrational motions, the visualization techniques of Raman/ROA and IR/VCD generation in molecules, and the production of publication quality spectra are features of PyVib2.
RM1 is a natural extension to AM1 and PM3 (PM5 and PM6 use different equations, which mainly affect the way the core-core interaction is defined); capable of modeling most molecular systems of importance to organic chemistry, biochemistry and pharmaceutical research; a new, recently developed, fully disclosed, and public domain semiempirical molecular orbital model.
SIMULAID is a collection of utilities designed to help setting up molecular simulations.
The TINKER molecular modeling software is a complete and general package for molecular mechanics and dynamics, with some special features for biopolymers. TINKER has the ability to use any of several common parameter sets, such as Amber (ff94, ff96, ff98 and ff99), CHARMM (19 and 27), Allinger MM (MM2-1991 and MM3-2000), OPLS (OPLS-UA, OPLS-AA and OPLS-AA/L), Liam Dang's polarizable potentials, and our own AMOEBA polarizable atomic multipole force field. Parameter sets for other standard force fields such as GROMOS, UFF, ENCAD and MM4 are under consideration for future releases.
VEGA was developed to create a bridge between most of the molecular software packages, like BioDock, Quanta/CHARMm, Insight II, MoPac, etc.
