Schrodinger Maestro

The Maestro 11 Advantage

 

Schrödinger is the scientific leader in developing state-of-the-art chemical simulation software for use in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and materials science research. Maestro 11 is the portal to all of Schrödinger's computational technology – far more than just a user interface, Maestro 11 also helps researchers organize and analyze data.

For several years, a team of user experience (UX) experts worked closely with our users to understand ways to improve the overall user experience in Maestro, and Maestro 11 is the result – a modern, intuitive environment with significantly enhanced usability.

 

Features

 

Completely reimagined interface:

By working closely with our users, our UX team completely redesigned the Maestro 11 interface to anticipate user actions, streamline common tasks, and organize data in an intuitive fashion.

Model generation:

Maestro supports many common file formats for structural input. In addition, Maestro provides an intuitive, full-featured building tool for constructing molecular models of any type.

Flexible visualization:

Maestro provides many viewing options to accommodate the varied needs of different applications. From biomolecular systems to complex materials, Maestro brings clarity to a wide range of modeled systems.

3D realism:

Maestro's superior rendering and stereographic capabilities allow researchers to view complex molecular systems as three dimensional objects with unrivaled realism.

Quantitative structural analysis:

Maestro includes versatile measurement tools that give the user the ability to precisely quantify a molecule's structural features. Superimposition tools make possible detailed comparisons between structures.

Customization scripts:

Maestro offers the ability to customize and automate tasks as well as manage workflow via scripting. Rather than a proprietary language, Maestro scripts are written in the industry-standard Python language.

Molecular properties:

Computed properties such as vibrational modes, molecular orbitals, or electron density are easily visualized in Maestro. The unique Sitemap feature locates areas within a protein that correspond to hydrophobic or hydrophilic regions.

Data management and analysis:

Maestro employs a data system that automatically archives structure-related properties. A built-in plotting facility helps elucidate structure-property relationships.

Publication and presentation:

Maestro outputs high-resolution, presentation-quality images that can be easily incorporated into documents for publication or for sharing data with colleagues.

Cross-platform support:

Maestro runs natively on Linux, Windows, and Mac.
