Title: Exploring the Exa-space with 3D-based screening methods
Many huge commercial libraries have appeared in the last 5 years that include Billions of molecules with a reasonable synthesizability and represent a huge opportunity for the drug discovery ecosystem. Bigger libraries can increase the chances of finding interesting hits in a drug discovery project but also represent a challenge to process with existing in-silico methods.
Several approaches have been proposed to deal with these chemical spaces that use simple molecule representations to contain the computational and storage cost. However, 3D representations add valuable binding information of the ligands and representations that are heavily tied to the chemical structure tend to limit the chemical diversity of the proposed solutions.
In this talk we are going to discuss how to tackle the problem of exploring huge chemical spaces in the Exa-scale without sacrificing the advantages of 3D based methods. Different approaches will be presented and compared in order to see the advantages and disadvantages of different molecule representations and screening methods and create a debate around the topic.
