When successfully applied, FEP calculations provide highly reliable and accurate predictions of the strength of the binding interaction between a small molecule ligand and a protein. These powerful insights help prioritize the compounds most likely to succeed, accelerating your discovery project and focusing your valuable chemistry resource.
FEP is a computationally advanced technique and requires specialist expertise to set up, and the necessary infrastructure and computing resources to carry out.
Much preparatory work is needed to ensure a successful calculation, and expertise is needed in the evaluation and curation of the protein, the preparation and development of the protein-ligand network, and customization of parameters.
