Cresset releases Torch V10.4 - Outstanding new tools help medicinal chemists make the best compound design decisions

Cambridge, UK – 23rd July 2015 – Cresset, innovative provider of software and services for small molecule discovery and design, is proud to release V10.4 of Torch, the leading 3D molecule design tool for medicinal and synthetic chemists.

This latest version delivers outstanding new scoring and visualization tools to help medicinal chemists interpret SAR, guide the design process and decide which molecules to put forward for synthesis.

Significant new functionality for multi-parameter optimization (MPO) includes the option to condense many activity and physicochemical properties into a single weighted MPO score that represents the fit to the project profile. New visualization, grouping, tagging and color coding capabilities support and enhance SAR interpretation and decision making.

“We have designed Torch to support medicinal chemists in their decision making process,” says Dr Tim Cheeseright, Director of Products at Cresset. “The new features in V10.4 focus on giving the user the freedom to customize, organize and sort their compounds and data any way they want so that they can see at a glance how their compounds fit the overall project goals.”


The customizable tiles view, plots and histograms in Torch V10.4 support medicinal chemists in multi-parameter optimization and decision making for compound design.
