Molecular Fingerprints Point The Way To Earlier Ca...

ScienceDaily (Mar. 27, 2009) — Metabolites are molecular fingerprints of what your cells are up to and Dr. Arun Sreekumar wants to know the impression made by cancer. You’ve likely heard about metabolites; your physician probably screens for some known ones such as triglycerides or cholesterol at your annual physical. Scientists suspect we have about 3,000 metabolites that come from our food or are synthesized...

ZINC Database – emolecule repository

What is ZINC? It is a free database of millions of commercially-available compounds for virtual screening in ready-to-dock format. Why is it needed? Compounds that are available today can become unavailable in six months because of unavailability of the underlying reagents. For most vendors, the list of available compounds is significantly smaller than the list of compounds they have made in the past. If you are doing...

Virtual Screening Gives Drug Design a Boost

San Diego, CA (OBBeC) – Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, developed a unique computational approach to identify key compounds that could lead to new drugs to combat African sleeping sickness — a disease spread by the biting tsetse fly and caused by the parasite Trypanosoma brucei. Around 150,000 people per year get African sleeping sickness. Unless treated, the illness is invariably fatal...

Otava develops virtual screening system

Mathematical modelling in biology is often a problem with interactions estimation between a biomolecular target and small molecule compounds. Knowledge of this interaction allows the interruption of certain processes in cells, for example it can impede diseases such as cancer. This is why so many efforts focus on designing better models and algorithms for high-throughput virtual screening techniques. Otava began developing...

Aarhus Denmark — July 23, 2008 — CLC bio has just released a scientific white paper which confirms, that, in benchmarking tests, CLC bio’s new algorithm for assembly of Next Generation Sequencing data is the fastest one available. Not only is CLC bio’s algorithm considerably faster, but it also provides a better quality of the results, compared to other algorithms benchmarked in the white...
