Dotmatics Informatics Selected to Enhance Research at Moulder Center for Drug Discovery
News Jan 25, 2013
"After a thorough review of the commercially available software packages for sharing and exploiting the fruits of drug discovery research, it became clear that the Dotmatics platform represented not only the best configuration, but also the most comprehensive package available" said Dr. Magid Abou-Gharbia, Associate Dean for Research and Director of the Moulder Center. "In building our capacity at the Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research we are focused on efficiently generating research data using a host of technologies and tools. The combination of Browser, Vortex and StudiesNotebook are key solutions which will allow our scientists to quickly triage, integrate and analyze data from multiple sources, speeding the pace and efficiency of research. These advantages afford our scientists increased opportunity to improve the health of patients through the discovery of new therapeutic agents."
The migration of The Moulder Center for Drug Discovery Research's legacy database to the Dotmatics platform will have a positive and dramatic impact on research workflow. Dr. Abou-Gharbia continued “Researchers at our center will benefit from the advanced data querying, analysis and reporting tools provided by this high end informatics platform. In addition, the secure web-based deployment of Dotmatics software will allow our external collaborators to easily access their data while maintaining safeguards against the release of data from unrelated programs. Our adoption of the Dotmatics system provides The Moulder Center with cutting edge Cheminformatics and database capabilities.”
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
