Recognition of Sheffield chemoinformatics research
Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry is one of the word's leading chemistry journals, covering all organic aspects of chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, natural product chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, macromolecular chemistry, theoretical chemistry and catalysis. It has recently celebrated its tenth anniversary (see http://blogs.rsc.org/ob/2012/02/02/countdown-to-obc-10th-anniversary-continues/), and the fourth most cited article in the journal's history is a paper from the Sheffield iSchool: "Comparison of topological descriptors for similarity-based virtual screening using multiple bioactive reference structures" by Jérôme Hert, Peter Willett, David J. Wilton, Pierre Acklin, Kamal Azzaoui, Edgar Jacoby and Ansgar Schuffenhauer, and published in Volume 2 (2004) pp. 3256-3266.
