SCFBio have developed Sanjeevini

SCFBio have developed a new android based application for drug design called Sanjeevini (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sanjeevini&hl=en). It is available free of charge. You can download it using Google play store. Just search for "Sanjeevini-SCFBIO-CADD" in Google play store. It contains all modules used by current Sanjeevini users. We have worked towards making a unified and easy to use interface. The app now supports all major small molecule file formats (pdb, mol, sdf, mol2 and xyz). The application contains inbuilt visualizer JSmol for easy analysis of results. Users can now directly download the protein files from PDB ("Get protein PDB file" in `FILE` Menu) and prepare it using the easy to use in-built module "Prepare protein/DNA".

SCFBio have worked towards making the process of Job retrieval more streamlined and user friendly. All jobs are now recorded in the "Job results". It can be accessed using the main page of the application. Job status can now be retrieved by clicking on the refresh button against the job ID.

SCFBio have also added a new feature of accessing Jobs run on different android application. Users can retrieve jobs run by other users by sharing the job ID and module name. This feature can be accessed using the Import Jobs option in File menu. We hope this feature will help collaborating groups stay in touch with each other.

The module contains all modules of Sanjeevini suite of software for structure based Drug design.

Sl No. Module name Activity
