Cresset has announced the release of the first major update to its computational chemistry workbench, ForgeV10, since its launch in 2012. ForgeV10.1 offers enhanced capabilities for viewing molecules in 3D, flexible handling of multiple reference molecules giving improved results during analysis of structure activity relationships, and the ability to download protein crystal structure files and rapidly split them into protein and ligand.
‘ForgeV10 has been an instant hit with our customers. They use it for gaining deep insights into structure activity relationships, for virtual screening on desktop hardware and to develop detailed pharmacophores for the design of compounds and compound libraries,’ said Dr Tim Cheeseright, Cresset’s director of products.
‘We have had many customer requests for new features, particularly for more control over how molecules are compared. We have listened carefully to our customers and are proud to introduce significant scientific enhancements in ForgeV10.1, as well as streamlining the design of new compounds and interpretation of complex SAR,’ he added.
