Moloc is a molecular modeling package designed with
emphasis on high interactivity.
Since 1986 it has been, and now continues to be developed in close
collaboration with drug designers and crystallographers of the
Roche Biostructural community.
General policy is to avoid site-specific features
in favor of a high inter operability with third party software.
Thus, a wide range of file formats can be read and written to provide
the necessary interfaces.
Clearly, interfacing is at present biased by the software packages used
at Roche, but implementation of additional file formats will be provided
upon request, as long as their description is publicly accessible.
The concept of continuous updates, as it is currently
practiced at Roche, is intended to maintain a high interactivity with
the user community. Continuous updates means, that whenever sufficiently many,
or urgent modifications have been implemented, a new version is
deposited for immediate downloading to all interested users.
