Optibrium and ChemAxon Collaborate
News Apr 15, 2015
Optibrium™ and ChemAxon™ have announced the results of a collaboration to integrate ChemAxon’s Plexus™ with Optibrium’s StarDrop™ software suite. The integration of these platforms further enables researchers to develop strategies for efficient, high quality compound library design.
The StarDrop software platform from Optibrium facilitates multi-parameter optimisation, property prediction and data visualisation to guide the design of high quality compounds for drug discovery projects. ChemAxon’s Plexus is a web based collaborative discovery platform which enables scaffold- and reaction-based enumeration of compound libraries.
As a result of the collaboration, a seamlessly integrated workflow and user interface is available in StarDrop for the application of Plexus to enumerate compound libraries. These are returned as data sets within StarDrop for detailed analysis, visualisation and selection of compounds with an optimised balance of the properties required for success.
Matthew Segall, CEO of Optibrium, will provide an overview of the results of this collaboration at ChemAxon's European User Group Meeting being held in Budapest, Hungary, May 19-20.
Staphylococcus epidermidis is an ubiquitous colonizer of healthy human skin, but it is also a notorious source of serious nosocomial infections. Now, a new machine learning technique will help predict the risk of developing a serious, and possibly life-threatening S. epidermidis infection.READ MORE
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.
