Ligand design using Torch and Spark in tandem – molecule growing

Lead optimization calls on the experience and intuition of team members to drive towards the project goals. However, using Spark (for bioisostere replacement) in addition to Torch provides additional inspiration that may not have been considered. This web clip shows how iterative design can be done and assessed within Cresset’s software by using Spark to…

Torch for iterative design

Finding the best compound to make requires careful consideration. Getting the best design is critical to progression of the project goals. We believe that designing in 3D gives helps you to make the best compound. To help you in this process we have built a comprehensive molecular editor into both Forge and Torch that enables…
