Network of a small data set of 11 Thrombin inhibitors: Project finishedBehind the scenes of Flare's alchemical Free Energy Calculations

Last month, Giovanna Tedesco gave a sneak peek at some of the new features in the upcoming release of Flare™ V3, our structure-based design platform. Here, Max Kuhn takes a closer look at the main concepts and the underlying software of Flare’s FEP (Free Energy Perturbation) implementation.

746x486_Analysis-and-review-of-Spark-databasesSpark™ databases: To update or not to update?

Spark™ is provided with reagent and fragment databases that are derived from commercially available and literature compounds. Susan Henderson was curious to see how the number of reagents changes over time, so took a look at the databases we have released over the last 18 months. See also this web clip which demonstrates how to update databases for Spark, some of which are released on a monthly basis.
