Ligand-based virtual screening using binary kernel discrimination

By B. Chen, R.F. Harrison, J. Hert, C. Mpanhanga, P. Willett and D.J. Wilton


This paper discusses the use of a machine-learning technique called binary kernel discrimination (BKD) for virtual screening in drug- and pesticide-discovery programmes. BKD is compared with several other ligand-based tools for virtual screening in databases of 2D structures represented by fragment bit-strings, and is shown to provide an effective, and reasonably efficient, way of prioritising compounds for biological screening
