the AI revolution in Life Sciences


SoftMining wants to change the way to do pharmaceutical research, by using sophisticated computational techniques. Over the last decade our group has developed new methods for designing medicines and to check their potential toxicity without the use of animal models. The results are extraordinary from a scientific, social point of view (because it greatly reduces animal experimentation) and cheap, due to the high market value for new drugs.

Drug design

We have developed several technologies specialized for designing small molecules. The input for these technologies depends on the information available: known active ligands or receptor conformation structures.

Computational toxicology

Prediction of ADME/Tox (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicology) properties of your small molecules of interest.

Data mining and process optimization

We apply comparative modeling to build three-dimensional protein structures in the desired conformation. Many protein structures haven’t been resolved, and even when they have, they may not be available in the desired conformation (related to protein activity or type of bound ligand).
