Tripos Unveils Surflex-Dock Virtual Screening Software

Tripos has announced the release of Surflex-Dock, a fully automatic flexible molecular docking algorithm providing a significant leap forward in rapid in-silico drug-screening applications.

The Surflex-Dock program, developed by Professor Ajay Jain, Ph.D., a faculty member at the University of California San Francisco Cancer Research Institute, is proved to offer unparalleled enrichments in virtual high-throughput screening, while exceeding the speed, accuracy and usability provided by existing methods.

Surflex-Dock has been extensively validated and favorably compared with all leading competing methods by independent researchers (Kellenberger, et al., Proteins: Structure, Function, and Bioinformatics 57, 225-242 (2004)). Surflex-Dock is now fully integrated into Tripos' SYBYL molecular modeling environment, and is available for immediate release.
