Brutus is a ligand-based virtual screening program based on molecular interaction fields. Given one molecule as a query, Brutus can search chemical databases for molecules that have similar (bio)chemical properties as the query molecule. Brutus can be used to find alternatives to chemicals that are difficult to synthesize, patented by a competitor, unstable, or toxic. Because of the objective 3D analysis of how the molecules look from outside, Brutus can find surprising new alternatives, which a chemist would not normally think of.
