I am one of the distributors of the
Energy Landscape Library (ELL)
enable studies for HP-type protein models in complex 3D-lattices.
is made for studies in arbitrary lattice protein models.
allows for lattice approximations/fits or real protein structures in PDB format.
To avoid ugly learning by trying: my

from University of Freiburg (Germany) on machine learning in chemistry.
Alessandro Dal Palu
from University of Parma (Italy) on the application of constraint programming in lattice protein models.
from University of Vienna (Austria) and Leipzig (Germany) on graph grammars and their applications.
from University of Leipzig (Germany) on energy landscapes and their properties.
