Aim of Curios-IT Print

Curios-IT is a brand-new cheminformatics company. We build tools to extract chemical and biological knowledge from your data. These tools can help you speed up your drug design projects.

Our current focus lies on the computational extraction of interesting substructures. AweSuM, the Awesome Substructure Miner, was built for this purpose and is being extended and optmised. AweSuM employs a method called substructure mining to find only interesting substructures. 

This site will contain various details about key substructures, the substructure mining method, our charitable goals, and more. So, act on your curiosity by browsing this site and contacting us!



Substructure mining
Substructure mining algorithms provide access to an important repertoire of otherwise neglected chemical descriptors: substructures. Substructure miners learn interesting substructures from a dataset by performing many substructure searches. Substructure miners are therefore at least complementary to other methods of chemical data mining, especially in terms of interpretation. This page conceptually discusses what substructure miners do, and notes a few of AweSuM’s features.
