What is small molecule binding?

Small molecule binding is about exploring how a small molecule interacts with a target, often a protein.

A small molecule is brought into close contact with a target (either in silico or in the lab), and the goal is to determine:

  • Does the small molecule interact and bind with the protein?
  • If so, how strong is the interaction?

The strength of the interaction is referred to as the "binding affinity".

What is the Small Molecule Binding Toolset?

We have put together a curated, best-in-class toolset for small molecule binding, which includes:

Here is an overview of the package:
