ready Big Data Nucleic Acid Simulations Database


General Information
Atomistic Molecular Dynamics Simulation Trajectories and Analyses of Nucleic Acid Structures. BIGNASim is a complete platform to hold and analyse nucleic acids simulation data, based on two noSQL database engines: Cassandra to hold trajectory data and MongoDB for analyses and metadata. Most common analyses (helical parameters, NMR observables, sitffness, hydrogen bonding and stacking energies and geometries) are pre-calculated for the trajectories available and shown using the interactive visualization offered by NAFlex interface. Additionaly, whole trajectories, fragments or meta-trajectories can be analysed or downloaded for further in-house processing.
