PADRE is a general purpose utility that can be used to analyse the results of conformational searches, and to measure similarity and differences between molecules. Some of the highlighted capabilities include:

  • molecular overlap based on sterics and electronics
  • cluster analysis
  • Tcl/Tk based dendogram viewer interface to RASMOL
  • automatic removal of duplicates from a multi-conformer file
  • RMS distance / torsional difference measurement
  • automatic detection of topologically equivalent atoms (automorphisms)
  • support for numerous input and output file types
  • simple command line interface
