Getting Started 

In a few simple steps, set-up and begin submitting your QuantumBioAmber, NAMD and GROMACS molecular simulations  from any workstation.  GridMarkets will then securely run your submissions and automatically return your results.   

1.  Create your free GridMarkets account. See the "Free Trial" button in the upper right margin.  After completing the signup process, five (5) free credits will be added to your account to trial our drug discovery service.  These credits expire if unused +14 days from account creation.​

3. Download our GUI tool.   Use the buttons that follow to download the Graphical User Interface submission tool for your operating system (see a sample of the GUI HERE).  Or, if you are a power user and prefer to submit using a Command Line Interface, skip this step and see step 4 below.

4. Review our Submission Instructions.  The buttons below link to the submission instructions for each of our services.  If you are a power user and prefer to submit using a Command Line Interface (instead of the submission GUI), the submission instructions cover how to do this.  Note that QuantumBio submissions are submitted via MOE (see HERE).

More on Envoy

more on envoy

GridMarkets' Envoy plug-in is the pathway to accelerate even your most complex molecular simulations and virtual screens easily, at scale, and on-demand. 

Our proprietary Envoy interface seamlessly and securely integrates with NAMD, GROMACS, Amber and QuantumBio. It is built and designed to eliminate the complexity of running computational demanding molecular simulation and screens at scale. No special technical skills or infrastructure are required. With a  simple push-button workflow, Envoy expedites your file transfers to/from GridMarkets Pharma's unique, pay-as-you-go molecular simulations and screening cloud platform.
