Torch Brings the Next Generation of Molecule Design to the Desktop

Protein’s eye view gives clear insights into the causes of biological activity

Welwyn Garden City, UK – 25 October 2012 – Cresset, innovative provider of software and services, announces the release of Torch, a complete desktop molecular design and 3D SAR tool for medicinal chemists.

Torch uses molecular fields to show the binding patterns of your compounds. This protein’s eye view gives clear insights into the causes of biological activity.

Working with Torch, medicinal chemists can see how to optimize the shape and electrostatic properties of their series, and rapidly identify the best next molecule to synthesize.

Cresset CEO, Dr Robert Scoffin said, “We believe that molecular fields are the most intuitive way of assessing biological activity. We would like every chemist to access the power of fields so that they can truly understand the mechanisms by which their leads interact with targets. Torch is such an easy to use desktop tool that it brings these insights within the reach of every medicinal chemist.”
