Data Management System for Distributed Virtual Screening
Ting Zhou , Amedeo Caflisch

To manage HTD data effectively and efficiently, we have developed a distributed virtual screening data manage- ment system (DVSDMS) by integrating the open source database MySQL into high throughput docking.

Microbial Genome-based Analysis Tool for Post-PKS Tailoring Steps
Ki-Bong Kim

We have developed a microbial genome-based analysis system to provide the user with a wealth of information that can be utilized for biosynthetic engineering of enzymes, especially involved in post-PKS tailoring steps. Post-PKS tailoring steps are necessary to add functional groups essential for the biological activity. Our system has sophisticated graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with a wide range of well-tested analytical functions, customized database, and well-maintained user-support applica

Treatment of Plaque Infections and Periodontitis using Stem Cells- A New Prospect
Manoj Hariharan , Naveen Raj

Dental precursor cells are attractive for novel approaches to treat diseases like periodontitis, dental caries or to improve dental pulp healing and the regeneration of craniofacial bone and teeth. These cells are easily accessible and, in contrast to bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, are more closely related to dental tissues. This paper gives a short overview of stem cells of dental origin.

A Novel Multiplexed Digital Gene Expression Technology
Gary K. Geiss1,#, Roger Bumgarner2, Brian Birditt1, Timothy Dahl1, Naeem Dowidar1, Dwayne L. Dunaway1, H. Perry Fell1, Sean Ferree1, Renee D. George1, Tammy Grogan1, Jeffrey J. James1, Malini Maysuria1, Jeffrey D. Mitton1, Paola Oliveri4, Jennifer L. Osborn3, Tao Peng2, Amber L. Ratcliffe1, Philippa J. Webster1, Eric H. Davidson4, and Leroy Hood5

We describe a novel platform, the nCounter Analysis System, for sensitive, highly multiplexed, digital gene expression analysis based on NanoString’s novel molecular barcoding technology. Detection of individual mRNA molecules using an assigned sequence of six different fluorescent spots per probe are detected, and then the number of times that code sequence appears in a sample are counted.

qPCRas a primary screen in drug discovery
GauravJaggi, Frank Boeckler, Andreas Joerger and Alan Fersht

We report the use of qPCR technique to follow the thermal unfolding of proteins by the binding of the dye SYPRO Orange, and exploit its potential as a robust and high-throughput primary screen for small molecule drug discovery.

Bayesian Parameter Estimation for Systems Biological Models of Dynamic Cellular Networks
Jarad Niemi, Lingchong You and Mike West

Dynamic cellular networks determine production of proteins in the cells in our body. The Rb-E2F network is a key example: it controls cell cycle, proliferation and degradation - a key network in almost all cancers. We develop statistical models of such single-cell processes - fine-time scale dynamic network models. Model estimation requires informative priors and custom Metropolis proposals.

DOCKING STUDIES OF A NEW HETEROCYCLIC METHYLTHIOMORPHOLIN PHENOLS DERIVATIVES AS ANTIHYPERTENSIVE DRUGS WITH ACE TARGET.CASE FESCDIPINE II
1V. Vázquez,1O. Vázquez, 1,2M.A.Balboa, 1A. Ma. Velázquez, 1V.H. Abrego, 1B.Camacho, 1L. Martínez, 1L.A. Torres, 1A. Ramírez, 1I.Martínez, 3R.López-Castañares, 1S.Díaz-Barriga, 4J. Bocanegra, 4Froylan Gómez-Laguna, 1F. Olvera, 1E.Angeles.

As part of the Drug Design in Medicinal Chemistry Program of the UNAM, new methylthiomorpholinphenol compounds with cardiovascular effect, were studied. One of them, FESCDIPINE II, was an excellent antihypertensive drug, that has low toxicity and preliminary studies indicate that the Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) system is the biological target of this compound.

3D-QSAR Common Feature Pharmacophore Model for Polyphenols as Potential Anti-Malarial Agents
Shruti Saxena, Amit K. Gupta & Mridula Saxena

3D QSAR studies have been carried out on a series of polyphenols for their antimalarial activity using CATALYST program. Hypothesis with three features namely hydrophobic (1), hydrogen bond donor (1) and hydrogen bond acceptor (1) was found to the best, which mapped well with the most active and least active compound of the test set. This model can be used to develop drugs for malarial chemotherapy.
