Prioritize the best molecules in drug discoveryFigure 4_ Compound 21 is discovered in this workflow with its predicted binding affinity
using Spark™ and Flare™ FEP

In this case study, we investigate the ability of a workflow combining Spark and Flare FEP to identify the best small molecules for drug discovery projects. Spark explores the wide chemical space to select the most promising R-groups, before Flare FEP is used to triage the results down to a handful of potentials with accurately predicted binding affinities.

Improving productivity in discovery research: Workflow management

In his recent International Pharmaceutical Industry article, Torx Software CEO, Tim Cheeseright, explores the advantages of using a centralized platform to connect all team members and outsourced partners. He discusses the technical requirements needed to capture complex scientific data and integrate with internal systems to allow scientists to manage their workflows effectively.
