Rational Discovery LLC

Rational Discovery provides computational modeling, combinatorial library design and custom software development services to the pharmaceutical, biotech and chemical industries.

"We do a substantial amount of internal research to develop new approaches for applying machine-learning techniques to solve chemical problems. Because we're a small organization and chemistry is a large and complex field, it is essential that we be able to quickly and easily prototype and test new algorithms. We have found the Boost libraries, a reliable source of high-quality code, to be indispensable.

Boost libraries used: Python, Graph, Smart Pointer, Any, Lexical Cast, Random, String Algorithms, Tuple, uBLAS."
