Webinar: Virtual Screening Success
February 27, 2013
Random HTS of large compound collections is extremely expensive with no guarantee of success in providing hits at given protein drug target. Virtual screening is a viable alternative approach to HTS and can access larger pools of compounds either real (millions from vendors) or virtual (tens of millions from enumerators) providing an output of a small focused set with a greatly enhanced chance of hitting the target, for purchase and wet screening, at a fraction of the cost.
There are many pros and cons of ligand and protein based virtual screening and both are highly prone to mishandling. This inconsistency of performance is partly responsible for a lack of uptake and low confidence in these techniques in the wider industrial context.
Cresset has experience in conducting successful virtual screening campaigns. This webinar will highlight some of the methods we use to ensure the best outcome, what the pitfalls are and how best to avoid them.
