Escape prior art: Find accessible new chemical matter for your project

Date and duration

Date: October 21st

Time: 1pm BST, 8am EDT

Duration: 45 minutes

Format: Webinar

Abstract

In this webinar we will demonstrate how Spark™, our bioisostere replacement tool, generates novel chemical diversity for your project, escaping the boundaries of in-house or published prior art. You will learn how to use Spark to rapidly generate ideas for novel molecule cores and chemical series by means of scaffold hopping and fragment growing experiments, and see a sneak peek into the ‘docking in Spark’ functionality of the upcoming new release of the software.
