Towards an expert system for predicting reaction conditions: the Michael reaction case

May 20, 2015 - Presentation
A generic chemical transformation may often be achieved under various synthetic conditions. However, for any specific reagents, only one or a few amongst the reported synthetic protocols …

Pharmacophore and physico-chemical property-colored fragmental descriptors 

May 20, 2010 - Presentation
Both fragment counts and pharmacophore pattern fingerprints are classical, well-established molecular descriptors, thought to be complementary. The former provide a molecular skeleton-dep…

Enhancing the Accuracy of Chemogenomic Models with a Three-Dimensional Binding Site Kernel

Jun 6, 2011 - Publication
Computational chemogenomic (or proteochemometric) methods predict target–ligand interactions by training machine learning algorithms on known experimental data in order to distinguish a…

Predictive models to detect incorrect atom-atom mapping of reactions using condensed graph of reactions

May 18, 2011 - Poster
Atom-Atom Mapping of chemical reactions represents a difficult task, because it should be related on the knowledge of the reaction mechanism. In fact, there exists no algorithm providing …
