I’ve been putting up a number of REST services for a variety of cheminformatics tasks. One that was missing was substructure searching. In many scenarios it’s useful to be able to check whether a target molecule contains a query substructure or not. This can now be done by visiting URL’s of the form 1http://rguha.ath.cx/~rguha/cicc/rest/substruct/TARGET/QUERY where […]

The current version of the REST interface to the CDK descriptors allowed one to access descriptor values for a SMILES string by simply appending it to an URL, resulting in something like http://rguha.ath.cx/~rguha/cicc/rest/desc/descriptors/ org.openscience.cdk.qsar.descriptors.molecular.ALOGPDescriptor/c1ccccc1COCC This type of URL is pretty handy to construct by hand. However, as Pat Walters pointed out in the comments to […]
As part of my work at IU I have been implementing a number of cheminformatics web services. Initially these were SOAP, but I realized that REST interfaces make life much easier. (also see here) As a result, a number of these services have simple REST interfaces. One such service provides molecular descriptor calculations, using the […]
I recently described a REST based service for performing PCA-based visualization of chemical spaces. By visiting a URL of the form http://rguha.ath.cx/~rguha/cicc/rest/chemspace/default/ c1ccccc1,c1ccccc1CC,c1ccccc1CCC,C(=O)C(=O),CC(=O)O one would get a HTML, plain text or JSON page containing the first two principal components for the molecules specified. With this data one can generate a simple 2D plot of the […]
Move Away from the Lamp Post & Find Druggable Targets 256th ACS National Meeting Boston August 19-23, 2018 CINF Division Dear colleagues, we are organizing a symposium focusing on methodologies and case studies that have explored under- or unstudied targets, with the goal of elucidating their function or role in the context of human disease.
