It is developed for biomolecules like proteins, but the extremely high performance means it is used also in several other field like polymer chemistry and solid state physics. This package provides single and double precision binaries. The documentation is in the package gromacs-common. mdrun has been compiled with thread parallellization, so it runs in parallel on shared memory systems.
