Mobius is a specialized optimization method developed specifically to refine and speed up the new drug discovery process for pharmaceutical companies. Based on the same types of genetic algorithms that govern evolution in the natural world, Mobius creates an interactive, collaborative environment where scientists can input their evaluations to guide and enrich the computerized evolutionary simulation process.
The insight and experience of medicinal chemists provides direction for the application of existing computational methods and algorithms through an initial set of design priorities. These priorities balance between biological potency and properties pertinent to a successful drug candidate. Mobius provides the foundation for the generation and evaluation of relevant ideas, taking into account the priorities of the medicinal chemist.
