The next-generation platform for collaborative drug design
The Advantages of Real-time Collaborative Design
A project team can generate new ideas far more quickly than it can record and analyze each idea; also great ideas can happen anytime, not just during regularly scheduled meetings. Every dropped idea is a missed opportunity to find a path forward through the complex maze of drug discovery.
LiveDesign allows every idea to be captured, shared, analyzed, and prioritized, leading to fuller exploration of chemical space, all the while facilitating better communication across the different functional groups. Any member of a project team can enter an idea and instantly get feedback using computational models to help further refine the design, resulting in real-time collaboration across time and location barriers.
Schrödinger's VP of Drug Discovery Group, Dr. Leah Frye, describes how her team takes advantage of LiveDesign in all of their collaboration projects.
Web-based interface is easy to use and intuitive to learn, while the data engine is built to support large data sets securely without compromising performance.
LiveDesign tracks ideas from the entire project team, allowing every new idea to be captured, analyzed, and prioritized. Real-time selectivity and property predictions update as you sketch.
Collaborative spreadsheets and change notifications streamlines the entire design process, and allows the entire project team to work cooperatively from wherever they are. Live reporting eliminates the chance of duplicated efforts.
Maximize Modeling Benefits
Validated structure- and ligand-based models in LiveDesign provide quick feedback on initial ideas, accelerating the selection of the best path forward. 3D visualization of simulation results elucidates key interactions and offers insights for further improvements.
LiveDesign accesses the corporate database, and brings together tools for idea generation, SAR analysis, assay data viewing, enumeration, plotting, and in-browser PyMOL 3D visualization. LiveDesign can pull in models and computed properties from anywhere, facilitating analysis.
