Benchmarking Lead Finder's Performance
The quality of Lead Finder predictions was extensively benchmarked in a number of computational experiments:
  • Virtual Screening Performance
    The ability of Lead Finder to distinguish active compounds from inactive ones during virtual screening experiments has been benchmarked against 34 therapeutically relevant protein targets. For almost all targets Lead Finder demonstrated significant enrichment indicators, confirming its applicability for in silico lead compound discovery.
  • Docking Success Rate
    The accuracy of protein-ligand docking has been assessed on a set of 407 structures that comprises practically all published test sets of such software applications as FlexX, Glide SP and Glide XP, Gold, LigandFit, MolDock, Surflex. Lead Finder successfully predicted structures for 85% of protein-ligand complexes, notably exceeding the results demonstrated by other docking software.
  • Binding Energy Prediction
    The ability of Lead Finder to estimate free energy of protein-ligand binding has been benchmarked against a set of 330 diverse protein-ligand complexes. Lead Finder demonstrated high accuracy of binding energy prediction with RMSD of 1.5 kcal/mol) at high speed of calculations (less than one second per compound on average on a standard single-processor Pentium PC).
  • Computing Speed
    To estimate time and computational resources necessary for your computational tasks, the speed of ligand docking on a single processor/core has been benchmarked on different compounds with varying number of freely rotatable bonds, computing environments, and configuration settings of the docking algorithm.
