Puzzle Category: Small Molecule Design

Puzzle
Description:For small molecule design puzzles, players are tasked to design inhibitors or modulators for proteins that are of therapeutic interest. This is different from protein design in that the chemical space space that can be enumerated is estimated at 10^60. Designing small molecules involves modifying individual atoms, adding and deleting fragments, and using reaction-based design for tractable synthesis of the small molecule.
