VLifeSCOPE is Structure Based Compound Optimization, Prioritization & Evolution. It brings together two powerful approaches namely - comparative binding energy analysis based method for lead optimization and score based approach for activity prediction.

Comparative binding energy analysis is a kind of receptor-dependent analogue method to a popular method of previous generation to enable better understanding of ligand - receptor interactions. For each of the ligands under consideration, intermolecular and intramolecular energies are calculated for the ligand - receptor complexes, the unbound ligands and the receptor.

The overall interaction energy of the receptor - ligand complex is partitioned into residue based interaction to calculate the differential contribution of each residue towards complex formation. The energy values of the individual residues thus calculated help in identification of the key residue involved in interaction with a given set of ligands along with the nature of their interaction in a quantified manner. This enables design of new molecules with better activity and selectivity. Activity of the new molecules can also predicted using VLifeSCOPE.

Advantages of VLifeSCOPE
Identify residues that are the key to modulating the ligand activity in a target
Provides an unprecedented insight into the interaction between the target and ligand by identifying the key residues within the active site that affect the activity of ligand, a critical input for lead optimization
Predict activity of newly designed compounds docked into a target
VLifeSCOPE delivers a mathematical function in the form of QSAR model useful for activity prediction with novel descriptors that better represent biological activity
Significant handle to researchers for lead optimization
Detailed and specific knowledge provided by VLifeSCOPE about the molecular properties of ligand that would interact favorably with the active site residue in the active site of the target directly guides the subsequent lead optimization step or new molecule design
Prioritization of compounds
VLifeSCOPE represents an evolved approach for prioritization of docked compounds based on their predicted activity

"This new QSAR methodology gives QSARpro, a decisive edge over conventional QSAR. The ability to combine kNN with MFA is a unique approach which I came across only in QSARpro from VLife. It is now a method of choice in my research."
