algorithms product recommendations can help in the search of drugs against viral diseases, found researchers from SKOLKOVO Institute of science and technology and Scientific center of research and development of immunological products name Chumakova wounds. This was reported on the website of the SKOLKOVO Institute.
“The researchers found that the widely used algorithms are not only able to recommend users buy music or movies in online stores, but also effective to select compounds with antiviral activity,” — said in a press release.
It is noted that the researchers compared the results of applying various Recommender systems for the selection of small molecules with antiviral activity. The system was able to select the most promising compounds as candidates for drugs. Scientists used ViralCHEMBL database that contains information about the antiviral activity of about 250 thousand small molecules with respect to 158 kinds of viruses.
The increase in the number of domestic developments and patents for inventions is provided by the national project “Science”, which should be implemented in Russia to 2024. Only its implementation is planned to more than 625 billion rubles. He also suggests the creation of 15 scientific and educational centers of the world level, commissioning research facilities class “magicians” and the formation of an integrated system of training scientific and scientific-pedagogical personnel.
