NUTS - NMR Data Processing Software

Acorn NMR develops and markets NMR-related software for Windows and Macintosh, and operates an NMR spectroscopy service in Livermore, CA.


NMRPipe is a UNIX-based collection of programs and scripts for manipulating multidimensional Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectra. It is developed and maintained by Frank Delaglio, with contributions from the colleagues listed the illustration link here. A typical NMRPipe installation includes related software such as NMRDraw, NMRWish, TALOS, DYNAMO, ACME, and MFR.


CYANA ((c) by Peter Gu"ntert) is a program for automated structure calculation of biological macromolecules on the basis of conformational constraints from NMR. The combination of automated NOESY cross peak assignment, structure calculation with a fast torsion angle dynamics algorithm, and the ease-of-use of CYANA provide for unprecedented efficiency in NMR protein structure determination.

Perch - Complete Spectral Analysis

NMR spectroscopy is an extremely powerful tool providing valuable structural and also quantitative information for the characterization of single compounds and mixtures. NMR parameters (chemical shifts and coupling constants) extracted from 1D-1H spectra already provide comprehensive structural information. However, spectral overlap and higher order effects pose a challenge making these NMR parameters difficult to access. Complete NMR spectral analysis using quantum mechanical optimization of NMR parameters to match the actual ones in the experimental data is a classic approach to handle this problem and used to be the gold standard of spectral analysis.
