Thermodynamic Analytics ToolkIt

This software is developed in collaboration with Alan Turing Institute for Data science.

The program is based on TensorFlow and it allows to train neural networks using thermodynamics. Coming soon!


Python based code using diffusion-map directed sampling to explore the Boltzmann distribution. It uses Openmm for molecular dynamics simulation. Currently under development.
