  Yes, thanks for sharing, very interesting!

  Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to simulate, for a given
chemical structure:

  - which proteins (or other bio-molecules) it interacts with
  - how that interaction changes the function of the bio-molecule
  - how changed function of molecules change biological networks and
systemic function

  However, what the article says sounds more limited:

  "... a database of 73 proteins ..."

     Take care
