Migration of a central compound management system to state-of-the-art technology
presentation JChem Engines JChem Choral Cartridge

In this talk we describe a recent project with a global pharma company to migrate an existing compound management system to a new system with state-of-the-art technology. The former system was based on BioVia Isentries client with a BioVia direct cartridge. Aim of the project was the migration to a modern web client and a Chemaxon cartridge technology. We used quattro/CM that is tightly coupled to MarvinJS and it can utilize all of the cartridge technologies. The compound management system is not only used for inhouse compounds but also integrate catalog data (ACD, Molport…) with millions of records. This is challenging for complex join queries together with substructure searches. After first development with JChem for Oracle cartridge we migrated to the new Choral cartridge because of better performance on trivial structure searches, that would lead to millions of hits. The integrated relevance ordering of the results together with fast response times are highly suited for hundreds of concurrent users and give convincing results."


Navigating Massive Virtual (and Real) Libraries

In recent years, DNA-encoded libraries and reaction based virtual libraries have increasingly been deployed in drug discovery. These vast libraries push the limits of available, readily synthesizable chemical space. So far there are limited solutions to search within these structure sets. Substructure search and similarity analysis are far more challenging when libraries reach very large sizes.  We discuss several technologies to efficiently analyze very large libraries. These tools can help researchers assess the chemical space covered by multiple chemical libraries and aid in hit expansion, scaffold hopping, and idea generation.

Impurity Identification Using LC-MS and in silico Reaction Enumeration
presentation Reactor

In this study, we show that using an LC-MS, together with an Excel add-on, named Reactor, impurities can be easily identified at the beginning of the process. Molecular mass values of impurities are detected by LC-MS. Known molecules, like API, known impurities, compounds used during manufacturing etc. can be added to an Excel sheet. Possible reactions, such as dehydration, lactonization, oxidation, adduct formation etc. can also be added to the Excel sheet. Reactor add-on can create reaction products, considering all possible reactants i.e. all known molecules and all possible reactions. Molecular mass values of created (enumerated) products can automatically be compared to measured molecular mass values, which can be a first step to the identification of unknown impurity peaks. These impurities can be submitted for a database search, in order to check their toxicity or genotoxicity.


A shared Instant JChem database to improve the drug discovery workflow
presentation Instant JChem

Here we will show a typical workflow, issues and solutions put forth for a Medicinal Chemistry project in support of Programs to design small molecules for synthesis.  Typically, in a dynamic biopharmaceutical Research environment, a team of Chemists are assigned chemical entities to design and present why this would be a good candidate for synthesis.  The first problem we see in a manual workflow is that structure ideas presented for next steps can be daunting due to the number of structures that the team will need to assess on a weekly basis.  The meta data information to support a project, like biochemical potencies, chemical properties like clogP, pka, etc. that come with each structure needs to be presented in an efficient manner for the team to review the number of compounds proposed on a weekly basis. The team also needs a platform that is easily incorporated in their workflow to search for compounds that have already been submitted for consideration, for synthesis.  To that end, the Research Informatics team presented the use of ChemAxon’s Instant JChem for managing all newly designed molecules.  This resulted in a cohesive platform wherein all Myokardia ideas are then curated in a client-server system that is backed by an Oracle database for structure/data integrity, security, permissions, indexing and reporting.
