Experts from Masaryk University Brno developed a piece of software that was targeted by the prestigious Harvard University in the United States. The scientific programme Caver is used for advanced analysis and visualisation of proteinaceous structures. 

 
 
The system Caver had been in development from 2001 and the unique result is well known to experts from all over the world. Masaryk University offers its basic version for free download from their website. The server counts about 4,000 registered users, most of whom come from countries with advanced research of proteins such as the United States, Japan, Germany, India or Great Britain. The prestigious Harvard Medical School has also asked to use the programme Caver and plans to work with it in about 150 research laboratories.

The unprecedented success of the system among experts has led the university to make it available for commercial use, so that pharmaceutical or biotechnological companies can now buy the software CaverSoft, too.
