ZINC20:Getting started

Jump to: navigation, search

ZINC20 is the first new version of ZINC in 5 years. It builds on the previous version ZINC15:Getting started. It looks a lot like ZINC15. Behind the scene, it is designed to be more scalable.

Primary innovation

The main new feature is the use of Smallworld and Arthor for database searching.

All documentation on this wiki for ZINC15 should apply to ZINC20.

Nerdy details

  • ZINC20 now has a more powerful database behind it (PostgreSQL 12.0 instead of 9.2 in ZINC15).
  • new version of RDKit (2019_3 instead of 2015_3)
  • We now use database partitions on the substance table to make the database easier to maintain.
