You can choose the colour and size for each data set displayed in your plot and, if desired, use these to represent other properties. Click on the colour or size in the data set key below the plot to use the Format by Property dialogue. You can configure the colours on the Colour tab and the sizes on the Size tab. On either tab, if you choose a property from the list then you can specify how to colour/size the different values represented by the property. If the property is numerical then you can either interpolate between two extreme values or you can specify bins. A numerical property can also be used with a log scale. When interpolating you can choose the ends of the range over which to interpolate. When binning you can edit the number of bins and the range of values that each one represents. For categorical data you can choose a colour/size for each category. When colouring by a property, grey is used to represent missing data. A following short video illustrates this.
The transformations in the BIOSTER module are a combination of true bioisosteres and 'bioanalogues', i.e. molecular modifications and analogue design techniques applied in optimisation.
The benefit of BIOSTER is that it introduces a vastly larger set of precedented transformations for the Nova module, complete with references to the primary literature from which they are derived.
For more information about the BIOSTER database, you may be interested in the publication "BIOSTER: A Database of Bioisosteres and Bioanalogues" István Ujváry and Julian Hayward, Methods and Principles in Medicinal Chemistry (Volume 54): Bioisosteres in Medicinal Chemistry (Ed. Nathan Brown) (Wiley-VCH, 2012) .
StarDrop's SeeSAR module requires up to date graphics hardware and drivers in order to function correctly.
When you visit StarDrop's SeeSAR tab, if you see a message which says "Unsupported graphics system", then you may need to update your graphics drivers. In 90% of cases, problems can be resolved by updating your graphics drivers and the following instructions give some details as to how you can do this.
First, find out the manufacturer of the display adapter you are using. If you already know this, then you can move on to Step 2 below.
To find out about your display adapter on Windows 7 or 10:
You can download the latest drivers for most display adapters from the manufacturer's website. The following list provides links to download pages for some of the most common manufacturers:
Please note that to run SeeSAR any graphics hardware needs to support OpenGL2.1 as a minimum which is not supported by all Express chipsets.
