In this talk, we present our tool, ReactionMiner, that can predict metabolic pathways to novel (unseen) molecules, by subgraph mining a reaction database, and using only the chemical structures of the molecules in the database. Our tool ReactionMiner is available from https://github.com/RamanLab/ReactionMiner

In this view, drugs are technologies with an inherent therapeutic potential. Once created, they can spread from disease to disease independently of the drug creator’s original intentions. Through the analysis of extensive literature and clinical trial records, it can be observed that successful drugs follow a life cycle in which...
