Chemonaut: on-line compound sourcing platform 

May 2010 Author: ()

Pyxis Discovery provides Cheminformatics-based lead discovery services to companies that are active in small molecule drug discovery. Our approach for designing and selecting screening compound libraries is based on the principles of leadlikeness and facilitates a rapid and efficient lead discovery process. Recently, Pyxis Discovery has launched Chemonaut, a compound sourcing platform which enables search and procurement from more than 50 vendor catalogues. This talk will provide an insight into data and structure standardization and filtering procedures implemented for creation and maintenance of the Chemonaut database using both ChemAxon tools and in-house developed algorithms.
