The task of designing new pharmaceuticals can be aided by a computer-assisted model of enzyme mechanism that would be easy to use. A program to do this, MOPAC2012, already exists, but currently it is only being used by expert computational chemists. The objective is to modify the MOPAC2012 program and its documentation to make it suitable for use by experimentalists.
