InChI: open-source chemical structure representation algorithm

Pseudo-atom biopolymer monomer atoms

Pseudo-Atom Biopolymer Monomer Atoms

Working Group Chair: Evan Bolton 

Efforts towards polymer handling have involved working with the Pistoia Alliance HELM  project to a core set of monomers for amino acids, nucleic acids, and glycans. This  harmonization of core monomers will help to enable use cases for biopolymer handling (i.e.,  input) using a pseudo-atom approach that will sit on top of InChI using the Zz atom.
