XML and combinatorial chemistry



Dear CCL,
 Does CML or any other chemical XML application support combinatorial
 chemistry? Specifically, I have in mind Markush or generic structures with
 lists of R groups. Is specific support for Markush structures necessary or
 useful, or is there a way to do it with existing CML elements? The CML FAQ
 (http://www.xml-cml.org/faq/index.html) notes that
 "Heteromers" e.g.
 modified proteins, are difficult to represent, which suggests a Markush may
 be as well. Thanks in advance.
 Regards, Eric
