BACKGROUND Many computational chemistry analyses require the generation of conformers, either on-the-fly, or in advance. We present Confab, an open source command-line application for the systematic generation of low-energy conformers according to a diversity criterion. RESULTS Confab generates conformations using the 'torsion driving approach' which(More)
