Genedata and ChemAxon Integrate Lead Discovery Technologies
News Jan 16, 2007
The integrated solution can capture and display discovery relevant information to help researchers identify drug candidates.
Scientific computing specialists at Genedata and ChemAxon have integrated the chemical intelligence functionality of MarvinView with Hit Profiler, Genedata’s software solution for the prioritization of hits to leads.
MarvinView is a platform-independent interactive visualization tool for viewing and managing chemical structure information.
The success of the integration rests on the fact that both companies use the same advanced software technologies, including Java 5 generics and concurrency APIs.
“Our customers recognize the value of integrated technologies for solving their business problems”, explained Dr. Stephan Heyse, Head of Genedata Screener.
