Release of PickR™ V1.0 enables selection of electrostatically diverse monomers for high quality libraries and better intellectual property

Unlike existing methods, PickR uses the 3D electrostatic and shape properties of molecules to cluster and select molecules for inclusion in hit-finding and hit-to-lead libraries. This command line application is easy to use, simply interfaces to most common queuing systems like Grid Engine, PBS or LSF and generates logical associations between molecules that fit well with the expectations of both medicinal and computational chemists. Read the release announcement.

Pipeline Pilot components V2.5.0 released

This new release of Cresset workflow components for the Pipeline Pilot™ environment is now available. These include new components for accessing Flare™ functions through the Flare Python API, new and enhanced components for Forge™, including the new Machine Learning methods for building Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships models of regression and classification, and significant enhancements to the Spark™ components. New example protocols are also available to illustrate the new functionality.
