New Flare™ Python Cookbook makes codingFlare_Python_Notebook
accessible to all users for increased design
workflow efficiency

The Flare Python Cookbook provides a fast-track and user-friendly path for novice and non-expert Python users to familiarize themselves with writing scripts, and take advantage of extended Flare functionality. It includes ready-to-use recipes and enables you to create your own workflows.


Computational exploration ofGIST-calculation-result water molecules
in ligand design 

The role of water is crucial in protein-ligand binding process, and understanding water stability in binding sites is crucial for successful structure-based drug design. The improved display of GIST results in Flare V6 make interpretation of binding site waters significantly easier, and enhances the ability of the computational chemist to understand the properties of water in the active site and the effect of ligand binding on the stability of these waters.


Enhance novel molecule design using Torsional analysis in Flare V6
real-time Torsion Analysis in Flare V6 release

Enable visual identification of problematic torsions on the fly by using the new Torsion Analysis feature in Flare V6. Torsion Analysis facilitates novel molecule design, by monitoring the quality of the torsions of ligand conformations and poses, to give an indication of which torsions are most frequently seen experimentally.
