Applications of SYBYL Software

SYBYL is a fully integrated computational chemistry and molecular simulation environment, providing a basis for understanding molecular structure and properties, especially the properties of new chemical entities. SYBYL is a comprehensive molecular simulation software developed by Trepos in the United States for the field of small drug molecules and biomacromolecules. SYBYL software can be used to simulate and score the docking of aptamers and small molecules. SYBYL software has its own scoring function Total-Score, which can be used to evaluate the result of each molecular docking. Since SYBYL consists of nearly 50 modules, the research that can be carried out includes modeling of small drug molecules, conformation analysis, three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship research, pharmacophore modeling, virtual screening, homology modeling of biological macromolecules, activity Locus analysis, database search, etc.

Drug Design Services at CD ComputaBio

During drug design, our scientists screen out compounds that meet the Lipinski's rule of five. This type of compound has better pharmacokinetic properties, higher bioavailability during metabolism in vivo, and high draggability. Lipinski's rule of five:

  • The relative molecular mass is less than 500
  • The number of hydrogen bond donors is less than 5
  • The number of hydrogen bond acceptors is less than 10
  • The fat-water partition coefficient is less than 5
  • The number of rotatable keys is less than 15
