A Quick look at Flare and Python

I recently wrote a review of Flare Version 2 which is a recent extension to the Cresset portfolio with the introduction of Electrostatic Complementarity (EC), i.e. a comparison of electrostatics on both the small molecule ligand and the target protein. In addition Flare version 2 includes a new Python API, that allows users to automate tasks by scripting, but also integration with other Python packages such as RDKit cheminformatics toolkit, Python modules for graphing, statistics (NumPy, SciPy, MatPlotLib), and Jupyter notebook integration, it is this aspect of Flare that is the subject of this review.
