Mega docking library poised to speed drug discovery

Researchers have launched an ultra-large virtual docking library expected to grow to more than 1 billion molecules by next year. It will expand by 1,000-fold the number of such ‘make-on-demand’ compounds readily available to scientists for chemical biology and drug discovery. The larger the library, the better its odds of weeding out inactive ‘decoy’ molecules that could otherwise lead researchers down blind alleys.
