MONTREAL, Canada – April 04, 2018

Chemical Computing Group (CCG) announces the release of PSILO 2017.12. PSILO is a structure database and visualization system that provides an easily accessible, consolidated repository for macromolecular and protein-ligand structural information. It offers research organizations a means to systematically track, register and search both experimental and computational macromolecular structural data. A web-browser interface facilitates the searching and accessing of public and private structural data. New and enhanced features in PSILO 2017.12 include:

  • Use the MOE sketcher to sketch ligands and define the full range of PSILO 3D queries
  • Evaluate TCR-MHC interactions and binding using the specialized TCR and MHC protein family databases
  • Import and export PSILO files using the Macromolecular Transmission Format (MMTF)
  • Deposit and view structure records more efficiently with optimized Oracle settings
  • Visualize PSILO records in 3D using the NGL web-based molecular viewer

The PSILO 2017.12 release includes a variety of new features and enhancements for viewing records and for searching and aligning proteins. Ligand and the full range of PSILO 3D queries can now be sketched using the new Java Script-based MOE sketcher. PSILO now includes T-Cell Receptor (TCR) and Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) specialized protein family databases, in which the TCR and MHC structures have been combined and placed into the same frame of reference for easy comparative analysis. Finally, significant increases in structure deposition and viewing speed have been applied through optimized Oracle settings.

Additional important features in PSILO 2017.12 include: support for importing and exporting Macromolecular Transmission Format (MMTF) binary format files and support for SMTP server with authentication.
