Abstract

The technology underpinning high-throughput docking (HTD) has developed over the past few years to where it has become a vital tool in modern drug discovery. Although the performance of various docking algorithms is adequate, the ability to accurately and consistently rank compounds using a scoring function remains problematic. We show that by employing a simple machine learning method (naïve Bayes) it is possible to significantly overcome this deficiency. Compounds from the Available Chemical Directory (ACD), along with known active compounds, were docked into two protein targets using three software packages. In cases where HTD alone was able to show some enrichment, the application of naïve Bayes was able to improve upon the enrichment. The application of this methodology to enrich HTD results can be carried out without a priori knowledge of the activity of compounds and results in superior enrichment of known actives compared to the use of scoring methods alone.
