SOMA2 is a versatile modelling environment for computational drug discovery and molecular modelling. SOMA2 is operated through a web browser. The SOMA2 environment offers a full scale modelling environment from inputting molecular data to visualisation and analysis of the results.
The system makes use of the scientific applications installed in the computing system for which the SOMA2 environment includes interface tools. The scientific programs are easily configured and automatically executed in the SOMA2 environment. In addition, the SOMA2 environment offers a possibility to construct a computational workflow where several programs are run one after another. The SOMA2 environment is designed to be run so that the CGI web application is executed as an authenticated user to provide individualised and secure way of using the application.
The SOMA2 modelling environment is developed and maintained by CSC. In earlier stages the SOMA2 R&D project was part of TEKES (National Technology Agency of Finland) funded DRUG2000 technology program. As of version 1.4 SOMA2 is enhanced to provide support to heavier grid computing. This development is funded by EGI (European Grid Infrastructure) foundation and is part of EGI-InSPIRE project.
SOMA2 1.5.0 Silicon was released on 11th of Jan 2013. SOMA2 Software is distributed under the terms of GNU General Public License (GPL). See Downloads page.
