# Opleiding Informatica An evolutionary algorithm for finding diverse sets of molecules with user-defined properties

@inproceedings{Burgh2013OpleidingIA, title={Opleiding Informatica An evolutionary algorithm for finding diverse sets of molecules with user-defined properties}, author={Benjamin van der Burgh}, year={2013} }

The multidisciplinary field of drug discovery deals with the discovery and synthesis of novel medications. For over half a century, Computer Science has aided chemists in exploring the extremely large chemistry space that comprises the set of all drug-like molecules. But only in recent years, the technological advances in computational power and the development of novel algorithms have enabled researchers to start experimenting with in silico screening of promising compounds. While many classesâ€¦Â Expand
