SARvision Plus 2.8

Altoris, a provider of cheminformatics software for drug discovery and basic research, has introduced SARvision Plus v2.8, a desktop application to visualise, mine and organise chemical data

The software automatically identifies chemotypes in a chemical library and organises data in a compound scaffold. SARvision Plus comes with capabilities to filter data by scaffold type and by any other associated data such as HTS results, docking scores or physicochemical data, and it identifies the chemotypes that satisfy user-selected criteria. Multiple tools including powerful graphics facilitate the task of identifying relevant scaffolds and compounds.
