Strand and ChemAxon Enter into Collaboration
News Jan 12, 2006
Strand Life Sciences has announced that it has integrated ChemAxon’s JChem suite of software with admetis, its tool for modeling and predicting drug-relevant properties of molecules in silico. The integrated offering will be launched in the early part of Q1 2006.
admetis is a tool for modeling and predicting drug-relevant properties of molecules in silico.
It is designed to give users the power to build custom models using their own data. This is made possible through model-building workflows based on Strand's expertise in in silico model building.
admetis comes packaged with its pre-built models, truPK and truTox, for predicting Bioavailability, Protein binding, Volume distribution, Elimination half life, Rate of absorption and hERG binding.
admetis has an extensive data mining and visualization module that supports an embedded chemical structure viewer.
The inclusion of ChemAxon’s JChem toolkit provides admetis with a chemically aware data management and search framework.
admetis users will be able to enjoy chemical editing and visualization capabilities as well as the power to build complex queries using structural and non-structural data.
"admetis couples pre-built models with a workflow-based modeling platform making it a distinct offering," said Kas Subramanian, CSO, Strand Life Sciences.
"Some of the key features of JChem directly address the requests from our prospects and customers. We believe that this integration will benefit our customers," he added.
"We are happy that we have such a good fit with the admetis offering and given Strands expertise and ambitious plans for future development we see a bright future for the collaboration," said Ferenc Csizmadia, CEO of ChemAxon.
Researchers at the Crick and Imperial College London have generated malaria parasites resistant to a promising new class of candidate antimalarial drugs. By analyzing the structural changes behind the resistance, they identified novel compounds that were immune to this mechanism of resistance.READ MORE
