The Mission of the Molecular Sciences Consortium (MSC) is to develop a forum for the creation of a robust software development community within the molecular sciences. In particular, the initial scope of the MSC will be to:
- establish standards in software and data;
- lead in the development and evolution of licenses for software and data;
- coordinate information exchange between stakeholders sharing/seeking data or developing particular software components, including SSE/SSI projects and community code.
