Press Releases in 2006:
SimBioSys partners with Sun Microsystems to provide eHiTS on the Sun Grid Compute Utility
Tue.,Nov 14, 2006: SimBioSys Inc., is pleased to announce its partnership with Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW) to offer the most accurate, easy to use and fast docking program eHiTS on the Sun Grid Compute Utility.
"We are excited to offer our software on the Sun Grid Compute Utility," said Zsolt Zsoldos, SimBioSys' President and Chief Scientific Officer. "Our testing of eHiTS on the Sun Grid has shown impressive scalability up to at least 100 CPUs. As a result, problems that used to run for weeks can now be solved in days which allows the drug discovery pipeline to be filled faster and with more leads."

SimBioSys releases eHiTS v6.1
with a new 3D visualization: CheVi®
Wed.,Jul 12, 2006: SimBioSys Inc., is pleased to announce a new release of its flexible ligand docking tool: eHiTS v6.1, which is more accurate, faster and continues to be the easiest to use docking program available. Download the new product brochure for eHiTS v6.1 at:
Contact us today and receive a FREE evaluation of eHiTS v6.1!
Better Binding Pose Prediction
eHiTS v6.1 is the most accurate pose prediction docking program available. In
a recent validation study of 1568 complexes containing drug-like ligands,
eHiTS was able to reproduce the crystal pose within 2.0 Angstroms RMSD from
the crystal structure in 100% of the cases. In 92% of the cases, the top
scoring pose is also under 2.0 Angstroms RMSD from the crystal pose. This
high level of accuracy make eHiTS ideal for lead optimization application.
In addition with the new standalone eHiTS Score Utility users can easily use
the eHiTS Scoring Function for consensus scoring applications.
Faster Docking Results
eHiTS v6.1 is now twice as fast as previous versions, thus doubling your
efficiency with a simple upgrade. In addition, eHiTS v6.1 is seamlessly
integrated with our ultra fast ligand-based screening tool, eHiTS Filter,
allowing you to screen very large database in less time than ever before.
eHiTS v6.1 has full support for distribution over many different
architectures, thus you get the most out of all your existing computers.
The Easiest to Use Docking Program
eHiTS v6.1 continues to be the easiest to use docking program available,
ensuring that users spend their time doing science rather than learning how
to use the program. Employing a very easy to learn command-line interface,
eHiTS v6.1 is very intuitive to learn and easily incorporate in to batch
jobs. In addition, docking results can now be expertly visualized in the
new CheVi v6.1, exposing a wealth of information about how and why a ligand
docks in a certain pose.

a new, easy-to-use, ultra fast ligand screening tool
Thu.,Jun 1, 2006: The new eHiTS_Filter
rapidly selects active molecules from your databases!
A new ligand based screening tool from SimBioSys
gives users the power to quickly screen large datasets for structurally
diverse active molecules. This proven scaffold-hopping capability is
possible because eHiTS_Filter uses chemical features of ligands, not
just 2D or 3D structural similarity. Thus structurally different
ligands, but having similar chemical features can be identified with
Amazing results: Trials have shown that
eHiTS_Filter is able to retrieve high percentages of actives in a
seeded dataset when trained on a very small number of actives. When
tested on very diverse ligands, eHiTS_Filter has shown a very strong
ability to retrieve structurally diverse actives, showing its ability
to scaffold hop and identify actives of varying chemotypes. Results
from several trials can be found here.
It's super fast: eHiTS_Filter is capable
of screening databases at a rate of 6-8 ligands per second per CPU.
Easy to use: eHiTS_Filter provides a very
easy-to-use training utility that will capture the chemical features of
your active molecules and uses this information to look for molecule
with similar features. eHiTS_Filter installs with a large set of
pre-trained filters that can have you screening databases within
minutes of installing the software.
Beyond ligand screening: The eHiTS_Filter
has been seamlessly integrated with the eHiTS docking program, giving
you the ability to screen very large databases quickly while still
generating docking poses of the most promising molecules.
