LAMMPS development has been funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE), through its CRADA, LDRD, ASCI, and other programs. This funding has come from DOE's OASCR and OBER offices.
Some funding for LAMMPS has come from DOE's Genomics:GTL program (www.doegenomestolife.org) under the project, "Carbon Sequestration in Synechococcus Sp.: From Molecular Machines to Hierarchical Modeling".
Some funding for LAMMPS has come from DOE's National Institute for NanoEngineering (NINE) program under the project "Nanocomposite Materials Design: Scientific Understanding and Control of Rheology, Assembly and Functionality".
