CDD Vault Update: Bigger and Better Chemistry
Other chemistry enhancements We have made several enhancements to our structure handling to improve duplicate detection, which means that some existing molecules will be merged. CDD support will be in touch with you if you’re affected by the changes. Substructure searches now use improved algorithms which yield better results in less time.
Vector graphics in Excel exports To complement the improved chemistry engine, we also added the ability to export better quality graphics. Excel exports now come with vector-based graphics for structure images and dose-response plots. The graphics can be copied and pasted to applications such as PowerPoint and Word, then scaled to any size with perfect image quality.
Other notable changes We now use engineering notation (like scientific notation except the exponent is always a multiple of 3) when formatting large and small readouts with significant figures. Plate wells are displayed when viewing aggregated data (averages, IC50s) on the Explore data tab.
