Summary of "Reaching for the bright StARs in chemical space."

Visualization of activity data in chemical space is common in drug discovery. Navigating the space in a systematic manner is not trivial, given its size and huge coverage. To this end, methods for data visualization have been developed charting biological activity into chemical space. Herein, we review the progress in different visualization approaches to explore the chemical space aiming at reaching insightful structure-activity relationships (SARs) in the chemical space. We discuss recent methods including consensus diversity plots, ChemMaps, and constellation plots. Several of the methods we review can be extended to analyze other properties of interest in medicinal chemistry, such as structure-toxicity relationships, and can be adapted to postprocess results of virtual screening (VS) of large compound libraries.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A phylum of the most familiar marine invertebrates. Its class Stelleroidea contains two subclasses, the Asteroidea (the STARFISH or sea stars) and the Ophiuroidea (the brittle stars, also called basket stars and serpent stars). There are 1500 described species of STARFISH found throughout the world. The second class, Echinoidea, contains about 950 species of SEA URCHINS, heart urchins, and sand dollars. A third class, Holothuroidea, comprises about 900 echinoderms known as SEA CUCUMBERS. Echinoderms are used extensively in biological research. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp773-826)
