Best paper award

Our conference paper “NPNavigator : a New Look at the Natural Products Chemical Space” has received the best paper award of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Molecular Sciences : Druggable Targets of Emerging Infectious Diseases session Natural Products and Synthetic Derivatives in Anti-Infective Drug Design. This paper describes NP Navigator - a new web tool useful in natural products (NP) research. It allows users to visualize and conveniently browse through hundreds of thousands of known NPs and NP-like commercially available compounds, to analyze various physicochemical properties and biological activities of those compounds and search for analogues of compound of interest. The tool is freely available at Detailed information about NP Navigator is reported in Zabolotna et all (DOI : 10.1002/minf.202100068)

This study was carried out in collaboration with Dr. Peter Ertl (Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research, Basel).
