Design a Molecule – April Results

The April design a molecule compettion proved popular. A quick look through the results shows some excellent designs were created with FieldAlign.

The winner was Lidio from Pittsburgh with a simple design that focussed on changing the core of the original target to remove 2D similarity and yet retain FieldAlign similarity. Well done Lidio.

Our first competition has been incredibly successful. However, we have had some suggestions for improvements for the next one which we will incorporate. The principle change will be to choose a target from one of the open source drug discovery projects or targets so that the results can be used proactively.
