NASR

Nearest Atom Shape Recoginition

NASR is a ligand-based virtual screening algorithm developed by researchers from the computer science department of the Chinese Univiersity of Hong Kong. It replaces the base points based approach with the nearest relationship among atoms. It outperformed the USR algorithm in term of enrichment factor when experimented on the class DUD-E dataset and the rresults are showed at the bottom in this page.
