May the best drug discovery tutorial win

Like a perfect alignment of stars, the Teach-Discover-Treat initiative touches on several areas of interest of mine. Its aim is to encourage the development of tutorials for drug discovery that involve freely-available software. The winners get a cash prize plus partial reimbursement of expenses to attend the ACS National Meeting where they will present the results. The competition is now open over at the TDT website.

I was fortunate to be present at the recent Spring ACS in New Orleans where the winners of the inaugural competition were presenting: Paulo Tosco, David Koes, George Nicola and Khaled Elokely. Unfortunately the tutorials themselves do not seem to be directly available on the web (and so will not be found by Google) but after agreeing not to be unethical you can download them from this page.

The results of the current competition will be presented at the ACS in San Francisco next year. Maybe I'll see you there.
