JME Molecule Editor is a java applet which allows the user to draw or edit molecules and reactions and to depict molecules directly within an HTML page. The applet was originally developed by Peter Ertl at the Comenius University Bratislava, and was eventually enhanced at Ciba-Geigy Basel.
The editor of the applet can generate Dayligh SMILES or MDL mol file of created structures. This applet has been released to the public and has become a standard for molecular structure input on the web with over 10,000 installations worldwide. The release of JME Molecular Editor was due to many requests, and because the applet was released Molinspiration provided JME with a place to offer installation and deployment of their platform.
The tool is a structure for input and editing, and is more than a property calculator and a database search tool. In conjunction with the Molinspiration property calculation engine, the JME too can calculate molecule properties available. This makes the tool relevant to drug design and QSAR, and determining the rule of 5 parameters or drug likeness.
