Abstract = {{A new software package, Browndye, is presented for simulating the

   diffusional encounter of two large biological molecules. It can be used

   to estimate second-order rate constants and encounter probabilities, and

   to explore reaction trajectories. Browndye builds upon previous

   knowledge and algorithms from software packages such as UHBD, SDA, and

   Macrodox, while implementing algorithms that scale to larger systems.

   Program summary

   Program title: Browndye

   Catalogue identifier: AEGT\_v1\_0

   Program summary URL:\_v1\_0.html

   Program obtainable from: CPC Program Library, Queen's University,

   Belfast, N. Ireland

   Licensing provisions: MIT license, included in distribution

   No. of lines in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 143 618

   No. of bytes in distributed program, including test data, etc.: 1 067


   Distribution format: tar.gz

   Programming language: C(++), OCaml (

   Computer: PC, Workstation, Cluster

   Operating system: Linux

   Has the code been vectorised or parallelized?: Yes. Runs on multiple

   processors with shared memory using pthreads

   RAM: Depends linearly on size of physical system

   Classification: 3

   External routines: uses the output of APBS {[}1]

   ( as input. APBS must be obtained

   and installed separately. Expat 2.0.1, CLAPACK, ocaml-expat, Mersenne

   Twister. These are included in the Browndye distribution.

   Nature of problem: Exploration and determination of rate constants of

   bimolecular interactions involving large biological molecules.

   Solution method: Brownian dynamics with electrostatic, excluded volume,

   van der Waals, and desolvation forces.

   Running time: Depends linearly on size of physical system and

   quadratically on precision of results. The included example executes in

   a few minutes.
