Draw a substance or
Pasting a smiles String
The first step is to draw the chemical structure of the compound you want to evaluate using the drawing tool provided in the app. Alternatively, you can paste a SMILES string of the compound into the drawer. SMILES is a line notation that represents the molecular structure of a compound. Once you have drawn or pasted the compound, you can review and edit it if necessary.
or uploading a csv or sdf file
Step 2: Uploading a CSV or SDF file. If you have a large number of compounds to evaluate, you can upload a CSV or SDF file containing the structures of the compounds. The file size should not exceed 2 MB. If you are uploading a CSV file, please ensure that it has a column with the name "SMILES" that contains the SMILES strings of the compounds. Only the first 10 SMILES will be considered in the evaluation.
hit the prediction button
After you have drawn or uploaded the compound(s), you can hit the Forecast button to initiate the evaluation process. The app will use a predictive model to analyze the compound(s) and provide a prediction of their hERG activity.
review the results
Once the evaluation process is complete, the app will display the results of the analysis. The results will include a prediction of the compound's hERG activity, along with a confidence score. You can review the results and use them to make informed decisions about the compound(s) you are evaluating.
