During this online course you’ll learn to build interactive cheminformatics workflows using the KNIME Analytics Platform and its Cheminformatics Extensions. The hands-on training will contain several units where we'll cover a diverse set of topics such as data manipulation and interactive filtering, fingerprints and R-group decomposition, similarity searches and clustering, and data visualization and exploration. After completing this course you'll have a set of fully functional workflows and will have learned how to build your own. This is an instructor-led course consisting of four 75-minute online sessions, each session has an exercise for you to complete at home; we will go through the solution at the start of the following session. The course concludes with a 15-minute wrap up session.
