Flare FEP newsletter imageLatest results for three GPCR benchmarks using Flare™ FEP

Recent results using Flare FEP for binding affinity calculations in membrane proteins are promisingly accurate for such difficult systems. Flare FEP applied 'out of the box' on these challenging targets predicts binding affinities with a prediction error within 1.17- 0.66 kcal/mol and with low linkwise RMSD, demonstrating it could be used with confidence for the prioritization of new designs.
