Visualizing PAINS SMARTS

without comments

A few days ago I had made available a SMARTS version of the PAINS substructural filters, that were converted using CACTVS from the original SLN patterns. I had mentioned that the SMARTSViewer application was a handy way to visualize the complex SMARTS patterns. Matthias Rarey let me know that his student had converted all the SMARTS to SMARTSViewer depictions and made them available as a PDF. Given the complexity of many of the PAINS patterns, these depictions are a very nice way to get a quick idea of what is supposed to match.

(FWIW, the SMARTS don’t reproduce the matches obtained using the original SLN’s – but hopefully the depictions will help anybody who’d like to try and fix the SMARTS).
