Virtual screening is a key process used to identify the most suitable molecule combinations when developing a new drug. Molecule docking is a commonly used method to analyze molecule structures and requires computing large databases to identify possible affinities between molecules. The special-purpose, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based Janus supercomputer accelerates the virtual screening process.
