BioExcel Building Blocks

BioBB is a software library for interoperable biomolecular simulation workflows.

The BioExcel Building Blocks (biobb) software library is a collection of Python wrappers on top of popular biomolecular simulation tools .

The library offers a layer of interoperability between the wrapped tools, which make them compatible and prepared to be directly interconnected to build complex biomolecular workflows .

All the building blocks share a unique syntax , requiring input files, output files and input parameters (properties), irrespective of the program wrapped .

The available building blocks are divided in categories (biobb modules) depending on their functionalities and tools wrapped .


The blocks can be launched on the web or installed locally. Documentation and source are available for each building block.

You may use this forum to ask the BioExcel staff for assistance in using the BioExcel building blocks.
