TS-Chemscore, a Target-Specific Scoring Function, Significantly Improves the Performance of Scoring in Virtual Screening

Wen-Jing Wang, Qi Huang, Jun Zou, Lin-Li Li and Sheng-Yong Yang


A simple strategy to construct target-specific scoring functions based on known ‘universal’ scoring functions is proposed. This strategy was applied to Chemscore, leading to a new scoring function, termed TS-Chemscore. TS-Chemscore was validated and showed significantly improved performance compared with the original Chemscore.
