The Chemistry Unified Language Interface, habitually abbreviated to Culgi, is a modelling platform that incorporates all well-established computational methodologies and theories, and moreover includes all essential modelling techniques. Scientific areas which have informed Culgi’s layout and construction are:
- Chemical informatics
- Chemical engineering thermodynamics
- Quantitative structure-activity relationships
- Molecular simulations whereby parameters are assigned automatically. These kind of simulations produce results both on atomistic and on coarse-grained level.
- Quantum chemistry
- Molecular Database properties
- Molecular Library design and screening
- Interface integration (to provide accessible graphic and scripting editors)
- Workflows and parallelization
Culgi’s algorithms are designed to run both on high-performance parallel supercomputers and conventional desktops, laptops and workstation clusters. The platforms that support Culgi are:
- 32-bit Windows 7
- 32-bit Windows Vista
- 64-bit Windows 7
- 64-bit Windows 8
Culgi has a yearly release cycle.
