RDKit User Group Meeting review

Paolo Tosco reviews the RDKit UGM – one of his favorite scientific events of the year. From his presentation about the integration of RDKit in Flare, our structure-based design tool, and in particular on its usage from Python through the built-in Jupyter Notebook interface, to what’s new in RDKit, GSoC RDKit-MolVS integration, open source programs built on the RDKit, RDKit in the modern biotech and cheminformatics problems – Paolo discusses them all.
