The Chemistry Toolkit Rosetta is a wiki for sharing how to use different chemistry toolkits for the same set of common tasks. The main focus is on chemical informatics, with toolkits that handle molecular structures, depiction, databases, property analysis, nomenclature, and the like. This includes 3D structure visualization especially as applied to docking and small molecule conformation generation, but the visualization should support bond types. In the future we may add other chemistry tasks, like MMFF energy evaluation, molecular dynamics, spectra analysis, x-ray crystallography, quantum mechanics and more, but don't hold your breath unless you want to help define and evaluate the tasks!

Chemical informatics toolkits share many core functions, but often use different approaches. The goal of this project is to help people be able to compare and contrast toolkit functionality. You might know how to use RDKit and what to see how CDK does something, or you have the choice between OpenBabel or OEChem and you want to see which is easier to use or better fits your needs. Perhaps you are a Pipeline Pilot user and want to show how to implement something graphically.
 
 
You should feel free to contribute code solutions using any toolkit, or set of toolkits, which solves the problem. Please include comments if a given entry is designed for simplicity, performance, maintainability, or some other criteria.
 
 
This inspiration for this wiki comes from [http://rosettacode.org/ Rosetta Code] and [http://pleac.sourceforge.net/ PLEAC], and the term "Rosetta" in term comes from the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosetta_Stone Rosetta Stone].

Welcome to Chemistry Toolkit Rosetta Wiki

The Chemistry Toolkit Rosetta is a wiki for sharing how to use different chemistry toolkits for the same set of common tasks. The main focus is on chemical informatics, with toolkits that handle molecular structures, depiction, databases, property analysis, nomenclature, and the like. This includes 3D structure visualization especially as applied to docking and small molecule conformation generation, but the visualization should support bond types. In the future we may add other chemistry tasks, like MMFF energy evaluation, molecular dynamics, spectra analysis, x-ray crystallography, quantum mechanics and more, but don't hold your breath unless you want to help define and evaluate the tasks!
