April 2013: A new approach for explorations in uncharted chemical space. Post-docs Aaron Virshup and Julia Contreras-Garcia, working in the groups of Profs. Beratan and Yang, together with Adjunct Prof. Wipf, report a new approach to taking "stochastic voyages into uncharted chemical space" in order to construct representative libraries that span new galaxies of drug-like compounds. They have shown that the regions sampled are absent in earlier real and virtual molecular libraries. Their approach appears as the JACS Just Accepted paper.
