  1. Proceedings

    Can the vector space model be used to identify biological entity activities?

    Biological systems are commonly described as networks of entity interactions. Some interactions are already known and integrate the current knowledge in life sciences. Others remain unknown for long periods of...

    FReDoWS: a method to automate molecular docking simulations with explicit receptor flexibility and snapshots selection

    In silico molecular docking is an essential step in modern drug discovery when driven by a well defined macromolecular target. Hence, the process is called structure-based or rational drug design (RDD). In the do...
