SMARTS viewer – a small tool, but very useful if needed:

“Machine Learning Mastery”

http://www.machinelearningmastery.com/start-here

You might find this useful for getting started with Weka, Python, R, … (some of my group members certainly did)

... and beyond Cheminformatics

Can a Biologist Fix a Radio?

https://www.cell.com/cancer-cell/pdf/S1535-6108(02)00133-2.pdf

(a true classic… but admittedly one I only came across just now. Things may have moved on since then, but possibly not too much. Very much worth a read!)

And that is it from my side again, at least for now. If you wish to present at one of our next Cheminformatics Meetings, whether virtually or in person, please let me know, and likewise if you have any information for me to circulate to this audience, cheers!

All the best, Andreas
