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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Maestro runs natively on Linux, Windows, and Mac.
