Catalyst Environment for combinatorial chemistry from Accelrys has the following modules:
HipHop identifies pharmacophoric hypotheses common across a series of HTS `hits'. These models are also used to perform feature-based alignments that can be used subsequently in the development of QSAR's and other interpretive models. HipHop matches chemical features, such as surface-accessible hydrophobes, surface-accessible hydrogen bond donors/acceptors, charged/ionizable groups, and features defined by users.
Catalyst/SHAPE provides access to a series of 3D shape descriptors for library evaluation and design. Once a desired shape model has been identified, it can be used to find additional molecular templates possessing a similar shape (accounting for conformational flexibility) that can be used in a lead optimization process.
Catalyst/INFO builds and administers databases of 3D structures from corporate or project data. Full 3D conformational models are generated via the ConFirm technology, which explores energetically accessible conformations that span a compound's flexibility. Catalyst is integrated with MDL ISIS to facilate the use of in-house information.
DBServer provides client-server support for databases of 3D conformational models, as well as access to data stored in ORACLE databases. Such data handling methods are necessary to handle the large quantities of property and structural data common to combinatorial approaches.

FRED is an accurate and extremely fast docking program. For every ligand, FRED exhaustively searches all possible poses within a protein active site, filtering for shape complementarity and pharmacophoric features before evaluating with several scoring functions (ChemScore, PLP, ScreenScore, ChemGauss, PBSA).
FRED uses a systematic search algorithm, accurately predicting binding modes in a reproducible manner, unlike many other docking programs, which use stochastic methods. Despite being exhaustive, FRED is extremely fast, out-performing all competitive methods; FRED docks about a dozen ligand conformers per second per processor. Furthermore, FRED will perform constrained docking, wherein certain pharmacophoric features are guaranteed to be in specific regions of the active site, allowing scientists to take advantage of known structure activity relationships.
Key new features in FRED 2.1 include:
- the use of multiple scoring functions during pose selection. This consensus pose selection significantly improves the likelihood that the ligand is placed in the correct binding mode;
- a more accurate version of the ChemGauss scoring function with significantly better hydrogen-bond perception;
- customizable scoring functions and flexible consensus scoring methods;
- greatly expanded documentation; and
- docking analysis tools for investigating how various parameter settings affect the reproduction of known structures of ligand-receptor complexes.

HASL the Hypothetical Active Site Lattice program. HASL modeling is accomplished through the intermediate conversion of a molecule to a set of regularly-spaced points (lattice) defined by Cartesian coordinates (x,y,z) and atom type. In this way individual molecules can be compared to one another, and their lattices merged to form a composite description called the HASL. The activity (ED50, pKi, etc.) of each molecule is distributed among the points in the HASL in such a way that the sum of the partial activity values associated with a set of points belonging to each molecule is equal to the activity for that molecule. The result is a model of the active (receptor) site consisting of points in space capable of predicting the activities of as yet untested molecules. A recent innovation, the construction of a predictive 3D-pharmacophore, is based on the selective editing of a HASL model. Recent investigations have shown that HASL modeling of data sets previously analyzed using the popular 3D-QSAR technique, CoMFA (Tripos), has resulted in similar degrees of predictivity and insight into active site binding. This observation is not unsurprising, since CoMFA, like HASL, relies on the deconvolution of a complex 3D problem into equidistant points in space. While CoMFA examines the effects (steric and electrostatic) outside the molecule, HASL focusses on a heuristic inspection of atom types within the Vander Waal's domain of the molecule.
HASL runs on PC-DOS, PC-Windows. The program can be ordered from:

This evaluation considers physicochemical parameters, such as logP. Metabolites can be restricted to those most likely to be of interest by user defined controls. These include:
- Selection of confidence levels for metabolite generation
- Sequence termination at excretable metabolites.
- External link to ClogP
- The potential to make species specific predictions
- Restriction to either Phase I or Phase II processes
The report for a query compound contains specific literature references, and links to external commercial metabolism databases are available. METEOR can also perform alongside DEREK for Windows, allowing a fast assessment of the likelihood of potential metabolites being toxic.

MOE (Molecular Operating Environment) Chemical Computing Group Inc. (http://www.chemcomp.com) has created a very unique tool for Drug Discovery researchers. MOE's uniqueness is due to SVL - Scientific Vector Language which lays at the heart of the package. SVL is a next generation high-performance data-parallel language. Due to the incorporation of SVL, MOE can be used in any combination of 3 ways:
- Out-of-the-box: MOE contains a robust set of built-in applications in the areas of High Throughput Screening Data Analysis, Combinatorial Chemistry Library Design, Protein & Homology Modeling, and QSAR as well as traditional modeling and simulation.
- Customizable functionality: As most of MOE's built-in functionality is coded in SVL, you receive the actual source code and hence are able to fully customize features ranging from additions to the Graphical User Interface to changes in the specifics of the algorithms.
- Prototyping: The package includes SVL therefore the user is able to quickly prototype ideas and papers at a speed and in a manner not currently available anywhere.
In addition, due to SVL, Chemical Computing Group is able to quickly turnout upgrades and new modules to ensure that you have a software package that keeps pace with advances in science. SVL also allows MOE to be a true cross-platform software currently running native on Sun, SGI, Windows NT, Windows XP, Mac OS X and DEC Alpha NT. This marriage of unique architecture and platform independence makes MOE the ideal corporate deployment vehicle. One that can change and grow as your science changes and grows.
