The BioSolveIT Drugathon is an event where drug discovery enthusiasts across the globe gather to computationally design and suggest novel drug candidates to combat current challenges and scarcely investigated diseases.
Participants will receive access to BioSolveIT applications (notably SeeSAR
) and work on a provided PDB structure containing a ligand to improve its binding affinity through modification and ideation (e.g., molecular decoration, scaffold replacement, and growing, ...). Results will be shared in the community to speed up the progress and increase fun.
- The goal of the Drugathon
BioSolveIT invests 10,000€ as financial resources to purchase the most promising compound suggestions. Those will be tested in collaboration with an academic partner, and the results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal. Contributors will receive respective recognition and acknowledgement.
