The search for a better charge model Figure 2. Electrostatic potential obtained using Astex-DNN and XED charge models

Protein-ligand binding affinity is one of the most useful metrics for predicting drug activity. We present one of the most promising approaches to predicting non-covalent interactions, compare it to Cresset's existing methodology, and discuss what this means for the future of Cresset software development.
