To evaluate the impact of life science databases and software, usage figures, use cases and citations in the literature play a key role. Here, we dive into the impact of SwissDrugDesign, the computer-aided drug design software suite developed by the Group of Vincent Zoete and Olivier Michielin. The SIB Resource indeed achieved a recent milestone by cumulating 10,000 citations. Other figures also reveal its wide range of application, from research to education and from drug design to tackling air pollution.
