LibProtNMR is a software platform and library of algorithms in structural molecular biology, and was developed in the lab of Prof. Bruce Donald at Duke University.

LibProtNMR is a Java library of various modules and subroutines for implementing algorithms in structural molecular biology, and is available as a source distribution. This software is meant to aid developers implementing computational structural biology software in Java, but we feel it would not be of much use to end users directly.

LibProtNMR is free software and can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (optionally) any later version. LibProtNMR is distributed in the hope that they will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
