Bioinformatics. 2011 Jul 15;27(14):2018-20. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr333. Epub 2011 Jun 2.


Summary: The FAF-Drugs2 server is a web application that prepares chemical compound libraries prior to virtual screening or that assists hit selection/lead optimization before chemical synthesis or ordering. The FAF-Drugs2 web server is an enhanced version of the FAF-Drugs2 package that now includes Pan Assay Interference Compounds detection. This online toolkit has been designed through a user-centered approach with emphasis on user-friendliness. This is a unique online tool allowing to prepare large compound libraries with in house or user-defined filtering parameters.

Availability: The FAF-Drugs2 server is freely available at
