Expanding the scope of “literature data” with document to structure tools
Data associated to chemical structures reported in literature are very important in drug design as they expand the scope of in-house generated knowledge. Public and commercially available databases allow scientist to access an increasing number of such information. However, alternative sources of data are still contained in document format and difficult to extract like in patents. Document to structure tools can be very helpful in this area; the objective of the talk will be to highlight some of these aspects in particular from a drug discovery angle.
