Chemists at a large chemical company improved their discovery hit rate fivefold by combining Muse molecular discovery platform with custom database search.
A large chemical company initially turned to Muse® as part of a proprietary compound purchasing workflow. Then the company found a new way to leverage Muse to dramatically accelerate the discovery of new commercial chemistries.
In their existing discovery process, computational chemists iteratively created models and used them to conduct 2D or 3D searches, repeating as needed, then discussing with the chemistry team which compounds to purchase and test. The rounds of searching and coordination between chemistry teams were time-consuming and conducted differently across the organization.
