ChemoTyper application

The ChemoTyper application is a tool that allows for searching, matching, and highlighting chemotypes - chemical substructures or subgraphs with optionally embedded atom, bond, electronic, or molecular properties - in datasets of molecules. Typical applications are as follows.

  • Searching for structural alerts for toxicity in chemical structure files
  • Filtering of chemical structures according to chemotypes
  • Visualization and inspection of chemotypes
  • Grouping of chemicals according to chemotypes, and
  • Fingerprinting of chemical structure sets against chemotypes

The ChemoTyper application houses the ​ToxPrint chemotypes library. The ​ToxPrint chemotypes library is a public set of chemotypes developed by Altamira LLC for the CERES project of the U.S. FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). The ​ToxPrint chemotypes library contains three basic subsets.

Chemotype Editor application

Chemotype Editor is a graphical user interface (GUI) application for creating and editing chemotypes. Please visit the Chemotype Editor repository on GitHub.
