Viper is DesertSci’s powerful ligand design software suite based on Scorpion technology. It is a completely new approach for designing tight binding ligands and identifies areas for improving protein-ligand interaction networks and cooperativity, using pharmacophore searching and fragment scanning.
With Viper you can identify new ligand substituents that substantially improve binding affinities without having to add large groups.
The Viper software suite includes Scorpion, our binding affinity prediction tool based on a network approach and ViewContacts, our powerful tool for finding classifying and visualising SMARTS based protein-ligand non-covalent interactions.
Viper can be integrated with our Proasis3, protein structure database and visualisation system providing you with a powerful and intuitive suite of tools for your research needs.
