Morgan Fingerprint Sizes

The RDKit FIngerprint node has a user defined function to specify the Morgan bit size.

May I know how are these sizes derived? Say I generates 1024 and 2048 sizes of Morgan bit fingerprints. Also, what are the bits represented?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi LM,

These sizes are used to code the information deriving from molecular fingerprints into a fixed size bit vector. As far as I know in the current version there is no way to know to which fragment correspond each bit. Moreover each bit can also codify more than one fragment due to the fingerprints collision events.

I hope this help. Cheers,

Gio

 

Thanks Gio!
