Pre-recorded Webinar “Synthia™: Retrosynthesis Software for Research Chemists”

Generating chemically-viable solutions with drug discovery software.

Synthia™ software is a computer-aided approach that efficiently searches possible pathways for target molecules to accelerate drug discovery.

This webinar presents an overview of Synthia™ including details on how it was developed and validated. The customised search functions, such as target selection, type of analysis, rules and filters, scoring functions and stop conditions, as well as result filters will be demonstrated in a live demo and an informative Q&A session will follow.

The sophisticated algorithms and expert database, comprised of more than 74,000 expert-coded rules, expedites finding viable pathways for synthetic targets.
