Welcome to Silicos-it!

Silicos-it has extensive chemoinformatics expertise to help you solve various questions in these domains:

   ✓  hit identification  [ docking and pharmacophore modeling ]
   ✓  high-throughput screening  [ outlier detection and post-data analysis ]
   ✓  compound libraries  [ characterisation, clustering, selection and acquisition ]
   ✓  chemistry-aware custom-made IT-applications  [ development and integration ]

Open source and sharing

Silicos-it contributes its expertise to the chemoinformatics community by porting its source code into the open source domain. Famous examples include our spectrophore descriptors, the filtering program Filter-it™ and the pharmacophore tool Align-it™. Information and downloads of all our open source programs are found in the software section.

This site has been developed to share information on open source chemoinformatics and how it can help you in your daily work. Our cookbook groups together hints for working with molecular toolkits, shares known problems and gives insight in our learning experiences. And finally, our links page gives you access to other sites in the chemoinformatics arena that we find interesting enough for sharing.

Customers and partners

Over many years, Silicos-it has build up a very diverse and interesting customer base, including:

   ✓  pharmaceuticals  [ to identify novel inhibitors against challenging biological targets ]
   ✓  biotechnology companies  [ to find leads using docking and pharmacophore approaches ]
   ✓  startups  [ in need of molecular modeling support for their lead optimization efforts ]
   ✓  universities  [ to setup internal compound database and storage systems ]

We hope that this website encourages you to contact us to discuss potential collaborative work.
