1200x627 3D-QSAR JAK inhibitors3D-QSAR study on JAK inhibitors

In this case study, Nathan Kidley uses a data set of 196 inhibitors of Janus Kinases JAK1 and JAK2 to develop predictive machine learning and Field QSAR models in Forge™. Forge QSAR model information tools were used to select the model with optimal predictive ability, while the 3D display capabilities were used to visualize and interpret the model. 

Cresset joins Open Force Field ConsortiumCresset joins the Open Force Field Consortium

Mark Mackey explains why we’ve joined the Open Force Field Consortium, a collaboration between industry and academia to develop a new force field for small molecules. The Consortium has recently released version 1.0 of the new force field, 'Parsley', which will be included in the next release of Flare™, our structure-based design platform.

Lunch and learn: Summarizing and Understanding Complex SAR

Learn how Activity Miner™ and Activity Atlas™ can help rapidly navigate complex SAR in a series of molecules. Topics covered include finding critical regions of SAR using activity cliff analysis; understanding the electrostatic and shape changes that cause a difference in activity; generating meaningful summaries of SAR into a visual 3D model to inform molecule design and help prioritize molecules for synthesis. Spaces are limited so register today.
