I doubt drug discovery would be anywhere near where it is today without Linux. I am starting to look up compounds that have been verified as highly specific to proteins. I can't look at how these compounds would look when bound to the protein without the linux terminal. In the old days, pre computer, people would literally have stick and ball plastic models to physically model protein-ligand interactions and predict good fits. There are millions of compounds- this is simply inefficient!
What do you dislike?
I'm not going to recommend something like this to most people because very few people understand and actively use the linux programming language. It is the most difficult language to learn in my opinion.
Recommendations to others considering the product
(a general note- the screenshot uploaded is not from the linux system itself, but the steps we use for utilizing the terminal, since a screenshot of the system itself with me logged in is just a screenshot of a general terminal)
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The compounds, once downloaded from pubchem, a compound database, can be converted to pdb files using the linux terminal. I can then, using an accessory application, view these ligands three dimensionally in "vmd." Linux has commands for me to use to determine which compounds can be used for drug discovery based on their size/molecular weight and chemical composition. This drastically narrows down the list of compounds we have to work with.
