Aims of ZINC12

The aim of ZINC12 is to simplify the prioritization and purchasing of new molecules.

Aims of this document

  • to provide sufficient information to use the interface
  • to give an indication of what currently is not implemented or working

General Notes

  • ZINC12 is not really ready for prime time. (May 3, 2011). However, it now contains enough new features to be interesting. Thus we are encouraging people to try it.
  • ZINC12 will continue to change substantially over the summer of 2011. We expect it to stabilize around August, and which point we will freeze it and start work on ZINC13.
  • If ZINC12 gives you any trouble at all, please go back and use ZINC11.
