sMOL Explorer 1.1 – Database and Exploration tool for Small MOLecules datasets

sMOL Explorer 1.1


sMOL Explorer is a 2D ligand-based computational tool that provides three major functionalities: data management, information retrieval and extraction, and statistical analysis and data mining through Web interface. With sMOL Explorer, users can create his/her own database by adding each small molecule via a drawing interface or uploading the data files from internal and external projects into the sMOL database. Then, the database can be browsed and queried with textual and structural similarity search. The molecule can also be submitted to search against external public databases including PubChem, KEGG, DrugBank and eMolecules. Moreover, users can easily access a variety of data mining tools to perform analysis including (1) finding the frequent substructure, (2) clustering the molecular fingerprints, (3) identifying and removing irrelevant attributes from the data, and (4) building the classification model of biological activity.
