MSMExplorer: visualizing Markov state models for biomolecule folding simulations

Bioinformatics. 2013 Apr 1;29(7):950-2. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btt051. Epub 2013 Jan 30.


Summary: Markov state models (MSMs) for the study of biomolecule folding simulations have emerged as a powerful tool for computational study of folding dynamics. MSMExplorer is a visualization application purpose-built to visualize these MSMs with an aim to increase the efficacy and reach of MSM science.
