Today, Datablend announces Similr to be available for beta sign-up. Similr allows scientist (both from academics and enterprise) to quickly search for compounds that exhibit a particular chemical structure. It employs a wide range of fingerprinting algorithms, which combined, allow to identify matching compounds in millisecond time. Similr’s functionalities are available through a flexible and expressive REST API and allows to scan more than 30 million compounds that have been made publicly available through PubChem. Sign up for the beta right now at similar.li!

Similr will provide unlimited API-access to academics. Free commercial access, limited to a 1000 API-calls a month, will be available. Higher up, customers can choose between a pay-as-you-go subscription or opt-in for a dedicated installation that allows for the import of (private) compounds.

Similr is being developed by Datablend, a Big Data consultancy company. Datablend’s expertise in Pharma, combined with proficient knowledge of NoSQL technologies, allowed for the development of a highly optimised chemical similarity search algorithm that is able to scan millions of compounds at blazing speeds. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions related to Similr and/or Datablend.
