NP Navigator: a New Look at the Natural Product Chemical Space


NP Navigator – a freely available intuitive online tool for visualization and navigation through the chemical space of NPs and NP-like molecules. It is based on the hierarchical ensemble of generative topographic maps, featuring NPs from the COlleCtion of Open NatUral producTs (COCONUT), bioactive compounds from ChEMBL and commercially available molecules from ZINC. NP Navigator allows to efficiently analyze different aspects of NPs - chemotype distribution, physicochemical properties, biological activity and commercial availability of NPs. The latter concerns not only purchasable NPs but also their close analogs that can be considered as synthetic mimetics of NPs or pseudo-NPs.
