Fragnet Search - an alternative approach to chemical similarity

The Fragment Network was described by Astex as a "chemical recommendation engine" and is used in their fragment based drug design programs. This algorithm was re-implemented at Diamond Light Source as part of their fragment screening program, and we at Informatics Matters have been further developing this. We will show an browser based search interface and an API that can be used to fetch molecules related to a query molecule. This is both more effective and more chemically intuitive than traditional fingerprint based similarity techniques, especially for smaller molecules. See: https://fragnet.informaticsmatters.com/
