schrodinger.rdkit.sorted_molwriter module

This module contains the SortedMolWriter class, which writes a sorted, capped list of molecules to a SMILES-CSV file. If capping at <n> molecules, SortedMolWriter holds a maximum of <n> rows of data in memory, where a row consists of the SMILES string, molecule name and a dictionary of properties.

class schrodinger.rdkit.sorted_molwriter.SortedMolWriter(csv_file, sort_prop, max_mol, sort_reverse=False, user_props=None)

Bases: object

__init__(csv_file, sort_prop, max_mol, sort_reverse=False, user_props=None)
  • csv_file (str) – Output SMILES-CSV file name. Will be compressed if csv_file ends with ‘gz’.

  • sort_prop (str) – The name of the property on which molecules should be sorted. Must be present for all molecules.

  • max_mol (int) – Cap molecules at this number. Take care if using a large value, as this determines the number of rows held in memory. Capping can be disabled by supplying a negative value, but this should be done only if one knows the total number of rows will fit comfortably in memory.

  • sort_reverse (bool) – Whether to sort by decreasing value of sort_prop

  • user_props (Iterable of str or NoneType) – Names of properties to output. Empty fields are written for missing properties. By default, the union of all properties encountered are output.


Adds a molecule to the capped list.


mol (rdkit.Chem.rdchem.Mol) – The molecule to add
