Here, we applied a modified self-organizing map algorithm for in silico recognition of molecular fragments binding two targets: 5-lipoxygenase and soluble epoxide hydrolase. The predicted properties were confirmed by complementary screening techniques: STD-NMR and enzyme assay. A variety of dual fragments active in both complementary assays could be obtained using self-organizing maps, which was optimized towards nanomolar inhibitory activity against both targets.

Fruit Fly Brains Inform Search Engines of the FutureVideo
Salk scientists, Saket Navlakha and Charles Stevens have a paper that shows that the way fruit flies identify smells that are most similar to ones they’ve encountered previously could improve computer search algorithms.WATCH NOW
