Icon ICM is a new program for molecular modeling and high-performace molecular visualization and animation in the following research areas: modeling by homology, structure predictions and analysis, flexible protein-protein and protein-ligand docking, bioinformatics, data analysis, statistics and plotting. The unique features of ICM include:

  • efficient global optimization in peptide folding and homology modeling
  • protein design computational strategies
  • boundary element solution of the Poisson equation for accurate electrostatics
  • fast analytical molecular surface and cavity analysis
  • truly continuously flexible ligand-protein docking, database-screening
  • binding and solvation energy evaluations
  • evaluation of local reliability of homology models
  • bioinformatics: sensitive sequence searches for possible homologues
The ICM distribution consists of the main program unit, and may include any single or a combination of three optional modules: ICM-Dock, ICM-Bioinformatics, and ICM-REBEL. See also ICMlite (free for academic users).
