  1. Resource Description
    ForceBalance is a force field optimization software package. It improves the accuracy of force fields by automatically tuning the force field parameters to match supplied reference data from experimental measurements and high-level calculations. The main goal of ForceBalance is to advance the force field development process by applying a highly general and systematic procedure with explicitly specified input data and optimization algorithms, paving the way to higher accuracy force fields, improved reproducibility, and well-defined scopes of validity and error estimation for the parameters. The optimization framework is highly versatile in terms of both the force field and the reference data; virtually any force field belonging to any software can be optimized, and the reference data can include experimental measurements and/or high-level quantum computations. Users of this program are highly encouraged to contact me (Lee-Ping) for more information! Keywords: balance, force field, gromacs, openmm, optimization, parameterization, potential
