- Frequently Asked Questions
Can I run CONFLEX as an engine for my AMBER software?
Yes. You can use the files from a Linux CONFLEX output as input to a Linux Amber version 7.0 and later. CONFLEX files can also be used in GaussView, ChemOffice, and other programs which can read compatible files.
What files can I import into CONFLEX?
CONFLEX Products can read MDL MOL files and SD files as well as Sybyl Mol2, PDB, CMF, and CIF files.
What file types are output by CONFLEX?
CONFLEX output files are in the 'MDL sdf', 'Sybyl Mol2' or 'CIF' format. Earlier versions used the 'fxl' format. We refer to these output files as"CONFLEX Conformation List files".
What is the recommended number of computers or cores I should use for Parallel CONFLEX if I want to investigate large molecules
like DNA, RNA or proteins?
This depends on a many variables including CPU power, machine type, etc. As a general recommendation though, 8 and more CPU/cores would offer a good cost-to-performance benefit.
What is the best Operating System for PC for running CONFLEX?
This is really a question of which OS you feel most comfortable with. The software performs equally well on the OS for which it is designed. CONFLEX operates on Windows 7, 8.1, 10, macOS 10.11 & up, as well as Redhat Linux 6.9 & up. Parallel CONFLEX operates on 64 bit Windows, Mac OS X 10.11 & up and Redhat Linux 6.9 & up.
