SIMONA is a generalized simulation kernel and a specific simulation preprocessor, which enables rapid prototyping of forcefields and simulation methods for efficient Monte Carlo simulations. As of now SIMONA could conduct crystal formation simulations, simulate protein folding, protein-protein interactions and conduct protein-ligand docking studies. It is written in a modular manner to allow efficient code reuse for both the developer and the user of the program. The first thing you should do is read the Installation Guide .

The SIMONA Preprocessor is divided in several parts, which relate to the type of simulation.
