Social Docking


Eric Jang


Social Docking is a novel application of new web technologies to solve problems in computational biology. By using volunteer web browsers to run molecular mechanics simulations, Social Docking achieves massively parallel virtual screening of pharmaceutical compounds and is run completely within the browser. The ChemDoodle Web Components library is used to display the current molecule being analyzed on the front page, and serves as the core molecular model for calculations within HTML5 web workers. iChemLabs cloud services parse compact SMILES strings into molecules.
