BACKGROUND Molecular interaction Information is a key resource in modern biomedical research. Publicly available data have previously been provided in a broad array of diverse formats, making access to this very difficult. The publication and wide implementation of the Human Proteome Organisation Proteomics Standards Initiative Molecular Interactions (HUPO(More)
BindingDB (http://www.bindingdb.org) is a publicly accessible database currently containing approximately 20,000 experimentally determined binding affinities of protein-ligand complexes, for 110 protein targets including isoforms and mutational variants, and approximately 11,000 small molecule ligands. The data are extracted from the scientific literature,(More)
A wealth of molecular interaction data is available in the literature, ranging from large-scale datasets to a single interaction confirmed by several different techniques. These data are all too often reported either as free text or in tables of variable format, and are often missing key pieces of information essential for a full understanding of the(More)
The Support Vector Machine (SVM) is an algorithm that derives a model used for the classification of data into two categories and which has good generalization properties. This study applies the SVM algorithm to the problem of virtual screening for molecules with a desired activity. In contrast to typical applications of the SVM, we emphasize not(More)
ASAP (a systematic annotation package for community analysis of genomes) is a relational database and web interface developed to store, update and distribute genome sequence data and functional characterization (https://asap.ahabs.wisc.edu/annotation/php/ASAP1.htm). ASAP facilitates ongoing community annotation of genomes and tracking of information as(More)
We report here an efficient implementation of the finite difference Poisson-Boltzmann solvent model based on the Modified Incomplete Cholsky Conjugate Gradient algorithm, which gives rather impressive performance for both static and dynamic systems. This is achieved by implementing the algorithm with Eisenstat's two optimizations, utilizing the(More)
This study applies a novel computational method to study molecular recognition for three sets of synthetic hosts: molecular clips, molecular tweezers, and a synthetic barbiturate receptor. The computed standard free energies of binding for the 12 binding reactions agree closely with experiment and provide insight into the roles of configurational entropy,(More)

In the absence of an experimentally solved structure, a homology model of a protein target can be used instead for virtual screening of drug candidates by docking and scoring. This approach poses a number of questions regarding the choice of the template to use in constructing the model, the accuracy of the screening results, and the importance of allowing(More)
There are at least two good reasons for the on-going interest in drug-target interactions: first, drug-effects can only be fully understood by considering a complex network of interactions to multiple targets (so-called off-target effects) including metabolic and signaling pathways; second, it is crucial to consider drug-target-pathway relations for the(More)
