In today's competitive pharmaceutical marketplace, making a scientific breakthrough and getting to market first is vital to maximize revenue potential. Identifying quality lead compounds is an important but time-consuming task along the path of drug discovery. Constraints on compute power can often impede progress. The innovative Electronic High Throughput Screening (eHiTS) software from SimBioSys running on the powerful Sun Grid Compute Utility (offered by Sun's Network.com) gives organizations a new way to accomplish fast, accurate docking of ligands to target receptors by using a secure, affordable, and scalable on-demand compute utility resource.
eHiTS offers new approaches to accurately score ligand and receptor interactions as well as to account for all conformation and protonation changes that occur during the binding process in the molecular docking and screening steps of drug discovery. The application fills the drug discovery pipeline faster by automating searches of compound libraries, identifying lead candidates rapidly, and reducing time to solve molecular docking challenges with the scalable power of its innovative algorithms running on Sun Grid Compute Utility.
