The “Empirical Conformational Energy Program for Peptides (ECEPP)” by Scheraga and coworkers which calculates the conformational energies of given peptide conformations was adapted for use with the CGK TR440 computer system. New programs for energy minimization, statistical data analysis and graphical display of peptide conformations were added. In this way the range of application of the original ECEPP program was considerably extended. At the same time, its handling was greatly simplified by an improved data input/output
A Journal of Biosciences: Zeitschrift für Naturforschung C (ZNC) is an international scientific journal for the emerging field of natural and natural-like products. ZNC publishes original research on the isolation, bio-chemical synthesis and bioactivities of natural products, their biochemistry, pharmacology, biotechnology, and biological activity and innovative developed computational methods for predicting their structure and/or function.
