→A new paradigm for describing structural fragments in molecules
This text describes the basic principles of the MotiveQuery language for describing structural fragments in molecules. First, the text puts two approaches for identifying molecular fragments in contrast: the imperative approach, and the declarative one, taken by the MotiveQuery language. Next, basic principles of the language are illustrated on several examples and later described in a more formal way. Finally, the original example is revisited and explained in the terms of the newly introduced concepts.
