Virtual screening application ReverseScreen3D using VeraChem’s VConf for generation of 3D ligand conformations

Prof. Richard Jackson’s group at the University of Leeds has released a Web based virtual screening application ReverseScreen3D, which uses VeraChem’s VConf package for 3D ligand conformer generation: “Vconf (v2.0 from VeraChem), which uses a stochastic method for conformer searching, was chosen because it has been shown to be highly effective at reproducing bioactive conformations.” Kinnings, S.
