Inhibitors against Bactera

Post by raghavagps » Tue Mar 16, 2010 5:22 pm

We are please to announce a server KiDoQ ( ) developed by our group for predicting inhibitors against Dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS). Enzyme DHDPS is a potential
drug target found in a unique DAP/Lysine pathway of bacteria. This server allows users to design and predict inhibitors against bacteria (DHDPS). In this server docking energies are used as descriptors for
developing QSAR model. For detail about server see following
Garg, A., Tewari, R. and Raghava, G. P. S. (2010) KiDoQ: using docking based energy scores to develop ligand based model for predicting antibacterials. BMC Bioinformatics 2010, 11:125 . ( )

Best of our knowledge this is first web server which allow to predict inhibitors against bacterial targets and will be useful in designing drugs against bacterial infection. In chemoinformatics or
pharmacoinformatics its difficult to develop open source software/
webserver as this field is controlled by commercial houses. One the
reason is that descriptor calculation programs are not available
free. We hope in future more and more open source software/webservers
will be developed by community. This work is part of OSDD ( initiated by CSIR, India, to promote better
health for public.
We wish to listen your comment on this type of work and your
suggestions to promote open source for drug discovery.
With Regards

again? Are you doing some original work or just stealling others?

I was just curious, do you know, how many accesses you have per day/month?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
