PADRE - Population Analysis and Duplicate Removal

PADRE is a general purpose utility that can be used to analyse the results
of conformational searches, and to measure similarity and differences
between molecules.  The program will be made available for a number of
Unix platforms (Irix, Ultrix, Linux, more to come...).  Some of the
highlighted capabilities include: 

- molecular overlap based on sterics and electronics
- cluster analysis
- Tcl/Tk based dendogram viewer interface to RASMOL
- automatic removal of duplicates from a multi-conformer file
- RMS distance / torsional difference measurement
- automatic detection of topologically equivalent atoms (automorphisms)
- support for numerous input and output file types
- simple command line interface


PADRE is freeware and can be retreived from the Ohio Supercomputer Center
computational chemistry archive (
