VF2++ – a subgraph isomophism algorithm for molecular pattern matching

In a previous blog entry, we introduced COIN-OR::LEMON (, the open source C++ graph and network modelling library. As we mentioned there, this library targets both academic and industrial applications. In this post a use-case for the latter is shown.   Last year, QuantumBio Inc.1 approached us with a simple request: they were using LEMON […]
